There used to be a binary of networker client available at last for
some arches for NetBSD (at last i386, sparc and alpha). I used it 4 years ago
to backup NetBSD system against a solaris networker server. I've since
then switched to amanda, but I think these binaries are still available,
and should still run thanks to NetBSD's backward compatibility.
