[rancid] moving rancid to new server

I need to move my rancid (3.8) setup to a new server. Is it ok to tar/gzip the entire directory and copy it or just do a bulk copy via scp of the entire /usr/local/rancid directory from the old to new server (and the .cloginrc file, of course)? Or should I re-install and re-configure from scratch on the new server? It's not the same distro, but as long as the other packages (like expect) are installed, it should be pretty portable, yes?
