The fix for the ports/59302 bug report caused some easily-fixable breakage.

A problem listed in that report was that "the server also complains about a
missing /etc/amandates file.", and the commited fix was to
"${MKDIR} /etc/amandates".  Unfortunately, that was supposed to be a file,
not a directory.  Changing that line to "${TOUCH} /etc/amandates" solves
both problems.

Note that this only affects misc/amanda-client and not misc/amanda-server.
Attempt to portupgrade the misc/amanda-client port.  If the port is already
installed it fails with this message:

    /bin/mkdir -p /usr/local/var/amanda/gnutar-lists
    /usr/sbin/chown operator:operator /usr/local/var/amanda/gnutar-lists
    /bin/mkdir -p /etc/amandates
    mkdir: /etc/amandates: File exists
    *** Error code 1
    Stop in /usr/ports/misc/amanda-client.
    *** Error code 1
    Stop in /usr/ports/misc/amanda-client.

If the port is not already installed, I think it would complete the
(incorrect) without printing any error messages, but I have not tested
