Tarsnap works great on FreeBSD. I have this script in my crontab:
# /usr/local/bin not in default PATH from cron
/root/bin/tarsnap-backup "$tarsnap" roger home/roger/serve/hg
case "$(date +%d)" in
01|15) /root/bin/tarsnap-prune-old "$tarsnap" --keep-days=30 roger ;;
Where tarsnap-backup and tarsnap-prune-old are from my repo
(as well as cronic, used to call the above script from cron).
