First, borg is not in our repo (yet)
Second, llfuse is considered optional for Attic
Third, Attic hasn't been updated since May 2015 and it has stack of
issues and pull requests that haven't been processed (probably llfuse
compatibility is one of them)
Fourth and probably the most important one: this update fix build
failure on other package where it's considered hard dependency

and probably Fifth, David has managed to find an easy fix for borg :)
