If I have built a freebsd system to my liking and want to be able to reinstall fbsd to my pre-dump state (assuming the same slice configuration). I ran
  dump -L -0f - /
  dump -L -0f - /usr
  dump -L -0f - /var
  dump -L -0f - /tmp
  and save these files remotely.
  Could I then expect to reinstall fbsd and restore these dump files and have the same state of the system when I dumped?  including all ports and all?
