BRU Seg fault & ATAPI Tape problems

Hey all,

Just installed a new Debian Sarge system and an older copy of Bru
(Bru 16) and it is Seg faulting. Not sure if its due to not having
the proper libs installed or if its something else like the driver
device (ht0).

The Backup device is a Travan NS20 ATAPI Tape drive. I've always
used SCSI tape drives so I'm not sure about ATAPI drives. The
tape drivewas tested in a Windows environment. Dmesg shows it as
/dev/hdd and also shows:

	ide-tape: hdd <-> ht0: TECMAR TRAVAN NS20 rev A245

Figured /dev/ht0 would have been created durring boot but I had to
create this with ./MAKEDEV -v ht0 which created:

	create ht0      c 37 0 root:tape 0660
	create nht0     c 37 128 root:tape 0660

Not sure why MAKEDEV -v -ht errored with:

	./MAKEDEV: don't know how to make device "ht"

Anyone know what library packages need to be installed for older
software like this? I have installed the following from the
'Oldlibs' section: libc5 libdb1 libg++27 libregex0 but did not help.

Running 'strace bru -x -vvvv /etc' ends with the following:
