Thanks, Moti!  I tried this but got an error:

  tar: You may not specify more than one '-Acdtrux' option

So, I googled for:
http://www.Google.com/search?q=tar+copy+directories+attributes

and found a neat LinuxMafia page.  I sucessfully tried this:

  rsync -av /some/source/directory/ /some/target/directory/
