I have not actually tried to install bacula without the +client_only variant and so I'm not sure if the director will work on Mac OS X currently. At work our director is on Linux and we have many Mac clients that successfully use the bacula (+client_only) port - which I now maintain. 

Hi, Frank.

Yep, the only way I could try to get across what I was talking about was
using the parlance of Linux versions of the repo files I need. My
director is on CentOS so I just need the client files for OS X.

Great stuff. Thanks a lot.
