You may want to look at ``rsync'' as it's very good at doing
things like this as it minimzes the network traffic.  The Mac
version of rsync handles resource forks properly, but this may be
an issue going between OS X and FreeBSD depending on the progams
that use the data (e.g. the Reunion genealogy software still loos
at the resource forks).
