I loosely followed the discussion here and like to mention, that I'm 
running HP's OmniBack/DataProtector 5.1 Linux-Client perfectly under 
FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p8 and 5.2-CURRENT.

I circumvented the 'semi-chroot' environment of the linux emulation with 
local NFS-Mounts of /, /usr and /var (/tmp let aside) 
under /FreeBSD, /FreeBSD/usr and /FreeBSD/var. The /FreeBSD-tree is 
seen by the linux-client and so I'm also able to restore into these 

So far, I found no drawbacks of this solution... maybe this is possible 
with other backup clients too.
