I don't think anything that provides a generic dump/restore is available.
dump/restore is file system specific.
A 1995 Linux port to ext2fs (Linux filesystem) from a very old BSD UFS
version is at ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu/pub/linux/packages/ext2fs/
An updated and maintained version for Linux ext2 filesystems is at
dump/restore is available from Darwin OS and should work for Mac OS X. (I
don't know where to retrieve at though.)
I don't know of any open source dump/restore that builds under AIX and
supports AIX's native file system(s).
Maybe the http://dump.sourceforge.net/ project has or will consider
including UFS (NetBSD and so on) support.
