He was asking if it's possible to do "zfs receive" on a system that doesn't
natively support zfs. The answer is no, unless you want to consider fuse or
similar. I can't speak about zfs on fuse or anything - except that I
personally wouldn't trust it. There are differences even between zfs on
solaris versus freebsd, vs whatever, all of which are fully supported, much
better than zfs on fuse. But different people use and swear by all of these
things - so maybe it would actually be a good solution for you.
The direction I would personally go would be an openindiana virtual machine to
do the zfs receive.

hehe. Anyway. Answered above.
