>Description:
	The amanda packages currently use a default of /usr/adm/amanda
	for the location of the indexdir.  For NetBSD, this should change
	to /usr/pkg/etc/amanda

>How-To-Repeat:
	Create an amanda.conf without specifying an explicit value for
	indexdir.  Both the amcheck and amdump programs will try to use
	the non-existent /usr/adm/amanda as the default indexdir

 IMO, something like /var/amanda (or even /var/lib/amanda...) would be more
 appropriate. $PREFIX/etc/* should contain configuration files, not
 backup history.

 Other directories are not hardcoded, btw.

 Why etc?  Shouldn't this be in VARBASE as /usr/pkg/var/amanda?
 But agreed that /usr/adm/amanda is goofy.
