So far I got up to the point where a backup job works to the cache, 
tries to upload to cloud (I see https traffic) and fails (obviously, as 
account data is currently fake).
I'm waiting for bureocracy to get the account, then I'll need to find 
some spare time to test it.

BTW, since I also maintain a jail to do Bacula regression testing, do 
you know if this can be integrated?
Is there some support upstream for this?

I'll see what happens: if the project goes forward, I'll have quite good 
testing and then produce a PR.
If the project dies in its cradle, I see if I can do some tests myself, 
but I'll provide a PR in any case.
If someone, in the meantime, wants this... just ask.

Yes, I added an option to your port which is off by default.
However, even if it's on, it shouldn't pose any problem (provided it 
compiles on all platforms), since it just installs some libs which will 
go unused.

BTW, I decided to make a separate port (bacula11-libs3) because it was 
easier for me; perhaps it could also be integrated into bacula11-server, 
but AFAICT it would be more work.
