It's not the backup that'll kill you, it's having a dynamically linked
copy of "ln" that needs something in /usr/lib/ that'll drive you crazy.
Solaris used to have this problem (I forget how far back), where if you
dusted /usr you couldn't even run basic filesytem manipulation commands
without booting from rescue media.
Put another way, are you 100% sure your restore program doesn't need
anything under /usr/? :)
