fbackup optimal config file

For HP-UX, fbackup is very slow on new drives like a DLT4 drive.  So use a config file with the following settings to get the fastest backup results.  See the HPUX man page for fbackup:

Here are my recommendations:
blocksperrecord 256
records 32
checkpointfreq 1024
readerprocesses 6
maxretries 5
retrylimit 5000000
maxvoluses 200
filesperfsm 2000

blocksperrecord, checkpointfreq, and filesperfsm are the key vlaues to be concerned with.
