I use zetaback on my OpenSolaris systems; I don't know of any reason
it wouldn't work on FreeBSD, since it's just using snapshots and zfs
send/receive.  IMHO it's really only suitable for disaster recovery
backups, not archival, though, because zfs send streams are not
guaranteed to be compatible between filesystem versions.
