Sure there is.  All of the configuration is stored in text config 
files.  There is a main config file for global options and each host has 
a config file in it's own directory.

Running BackupPC is simply a matter of starting the process.  There are 
various scripts available for manually starting backups and getting stats.

That said, the GUI is by far the easiest way to add new clients and look 
for failing backups or other issues.
