Not at all, unfortunately. snapshots are a UFS2 feature only available
in 5.x or above.
However, sys-admins have been making backups without the benefit of
snapshots for decades: usually if you can arrange for anything that uses
the partition to be quiescent or turned off while the backup is being
run, you should succeed.
