There are a few 32 vs. 64-bit issues present.  Some time ago I modified
it so that it works (including mounting existing cfs directories).

I made the sources available as:

To build, you can use the port, e.g.:

# cd /usr/ports/security/cfs
# make extract
# zcat /tmp/cfs-1.4.1-64bit.tar.gz | (cd work && pax -rv)
# cp work/cfs/* work/cfs-1.4.1
# make

Note that it requires COMPAT_43 in the kernel configuration (which is
not in amd64 GENERIC).

I'm not quite sure that the above is the latest version of the modified
source; if it doesn't work, let me know and I'll try to find a newer
