Ah -- there is your problem.  dump/restore only works with UFS.

However, if what you want to do is copy a directory heirarchy from one
place to another preserving ownership and permissions and so forth, then
there are very many ways to do that.

Two suggestions:

  1) Using stuff from the base system only:

  # cd /src/dir
  # tar -cf - . | ( cd /dest/dir ; tar -xvf - )

  2) Using rsync(1) from ports:

  # rsync -avx /src/dir/ /dest/dir/

  (Note the trailing slashes on the directory paths -- they're
   important with rsync.)
