The way it works, the port you specify in pbi.conf:


Is the one which is monitored for updates, and triggers a rebuild. If 
you wanted to, you could change the port to 
/usr/ports/sysutils/bacula-server to follow the server updates, then 
setup pbi.conf and add OTHERPORTS like this:


This will "track" bacula-server port, and rebuild when it is updated. 
Take a look at the "pidgin" module to see how I did this in there, it 
really is tracking libpurple, not pidgin itself.

Also, I noticed that in the Makefile for bacula-bat, there is no version 
number indicated. This is why the PBI is showing up as 
BaculaBat-PV0.pbi, instead of BaculaBat<version>-PV0.pbi. Makes it 
harder to tell which version we are dealing with. It needs some sort of 
DISTVERSION=    2.4.2 line or something. If you switch it around like I 
showed above though, it'll use the DISTVERSION from bacula-server properly.

I've gone ahead and added the file "dirstatus" with "Active" in it, 
which just indicates that this is a current PBI available on PBIDir. Is 
this a new version which needs to be added to PBIDir as well?
