I figured out everything I wanted to know from the manual page. It's
a pretty good manual -- the reason it gives people trouble is just
that there are so *many* different things it can do.
In the "EXAMPLES" section of its manual, there is a formula for how to
"create an /etc/mtree style BSD.*.dist file" which is the first half
of what you want. Offhand, I think "mtree -U" is enough to mash
everything back to the way the original specification described.
