Nevermind, I found the answer to my question already. http://acl.bestbits.at has an updated fileutils with ACL support.

I have a simple question. Are there any ACL aware commands for linux? It seems like the simple tools, eg. cp, tar, etc. do not preserve ACL's. This throws a wrench in my plans somewhat as I am serving to windows via samba, with ACL's enabled, and I have no way to backup in a way that preserves ACL's.
