You are right, but I should have said that the checks were for sys/tape.h and sys/mtio.h. It turns out the that it's sys/tape.h that needs time.h. Without it: In file included from test-mtio.c:3:0: /usr/include/sys/tape.h:70:18: error: field ‘attachtime’ has incomplete type /usr/include/sys/tape.h:71:18: error: field ‘timestamp’ has incomplete type /usr/include/sys/tape.h:72:18: error: field ‘time’ has incomplete type (We don't seem to have a sys/tape.h man page.) Amanda has taken my patch and applied a modified version of it (just checking that sys/time.h exists before including it, and improved error messages in the no-tape), so I'm going to put their patch in pkgsrc. With the change I posted, amanda 3.3.1 did successfully do backups and write them to tape.
