Default Running Symantec Netbackup under OpenBSD

Has anyone been able to successfully run Symantec (originally Veritas) Netbackup under OpenBSD 4.8? My campus has standardized on in for enterprise backup and I would like to be able to use it to backup my OpenBSD servers. Unfortunately there is not a native OpenBSD client, so I have to try to run either the FreeBSD or Linux binaries.

The FreeBSD client seems requires at least FreeBSD 5, so the OpenBSD emulation layer doesn't quite work as it's missing some required system calls. The Linux client seems to be running into SELinux issues. So I haven't had much luck.

I was hoping someone has been able to make it work and could give me some hints. Thanks.
