It always worked for me until block devices were axed. Apparently it

Or upgrade to FreeBSD-3 to get unaxed block devices :->.
The ext2fs utilites work on regular files (better than ffs ones), so
they can be used (very slowly and with muttering about axes) directly
under FreeBSD by copying partitions to regular files, fixing them
there, and copying them back. This is least painful for mke2fs since
you can start with a sparse file instead of a copy of a partition.
