Woha, timeout. Are you saying 'dump' produces files in a format *not* 
guaranteed to work with 'restore' on another system if it is not running the 
exact same version of FreeBSD? Or having the same file system size?

I had always assumed - given that it's a backup tool - that the format of the 
dump was portable.
