Yes, copying fsck_ext2fs and e2fsck to /sbin works - I've looked in
files/fsck_ext2fs.c in the port and I noticed that it only looks for e2fsck in
/sbin - hence the execve error. Thanks for the pointer!

I got the impression that Linux doesn't support ufs2 at all, and, well, I just
trust FreeBSD's ext2 implementation more than I do Linux's ufs one ;)
