I don't currently use rancid to backup Fortigate configurations, but your 
firewall people should be able to create a global read-only admin user that 
has access to all VDOM configurations (the predefined accprofile "super_admin" 
is read/write for all VDOMs, for example). As recent versions of fnrancid run 
"show full-configuration", you should then get complete config data, global 
and for all vdoms.
