Is there any simple clean way to copy an entire directory tree and
preserve both the flags (like schg) AND hard links within the tree?
(And, of course, preserve device special nodes, etc.)

        cp -r   Copies hardlinked files as separate files
        cpio    Doesn't preserve flags
        pax     Doesn't preserve flags
        dump    Only works on entire filesystems

If it matters, I'm particularly interested in doing this on RELENG_5_1;
but a solution that works in 4-STABLE would also be appreciated.
