Error message concerning systemtap file

Hi there --

I do a nightly backup of our servers, and recently the image and incremental backups of one of our servers started displaying the following error:

cannot perform stat on /usr/libexec/systemtap
I checked the file in question, and here is the output of the listing:

?--------- ? ? ? ? ? systemtap
The version of Fedora that is running on the server is the Core 5 release. Is there a systemtap package available, or do I need to download the tar.gz file, and install from source? Thanks.

If you don't know what systemtap is, then you don't need it ...
Seriously, I'd just ignore that message - but there will (almost) certainly be a package for it. Go look here for some info if interested.
