Thank you, I guess I just didn't know well
enough!  But also, this was a linux script,
don't think mtree is normally available
there. The script was familiar and save some
minor improvements, I just fixed the stat
command to work in NetBSD.

(Wish the NetBSD toolbox was everywhere, eg
the netbsd ksh is only available in NetBSD)
