Thanks for the heads up to this utility, as it would make life easier for a 
few people who are trying to move data from Linux to FreeBSD.

I've got a ports Makefile which seems to be OK, but I don't have a ReiserFS 
filesystem available to test the program against.  Does anyone have a small 
image (under 100MB, preferably under 10MB) of a ReiserFS filesystem handy? 
Otherwise, I'll probably need a day or so to set something up to test this 


PS: If anyone else is interested in this and already has ReiserFS filesystems 
around, please test this for brownie points or even take the port instead:
