Why make it harder than it needs to be?  Call it / or /var or /usr
instead of /dev/ad0s1whatever.  dump will handle it.

This works without problems as long as it is running from the
system to be copied. In case you use a live system, it doesn't
know anything about the associations between devices and the
mountpoints; this information is, as far as I know, obtained
via /etc/fstab. This is important to know especially if the
source and target disk have different layouts and concepts,
e. g. /dev/ad0s1d = /var -> /dev/da0s1e = /var (different
partition names for same subtree).

Yes, you're right. I only realized that after sending... so I just sent an additional message.
