So I'm playing with the dump on the 133 i386 port. I sent the dump, via
ssh, to a solaris machine to be dd onto a tape drive:

netbsd> dump -0u -f- | ssh -l root solaris dd if=/dev/rmt/0n bs=32k

If I dd the dump file back out onto a spare disk on the solaris
machine, I can't use ufsrestore to read the dump file (seg fault).
However, I can use bsd's restore. Is this an endian issue? Or is the
dump format just different?
