The package builds on kfreebsd just fine, but I never tested if it
really works there. Actually, before the last upload the package did
not have any explicit dependency on fuse-utils, that is why it
migrated to testing seamlessly in the past.
That missing dependency was a bug on linux, because the operation of
convmvfs depends on preloading the fuse kernel module (the initscript
of fuse-utils does that) and on the avaliability of fusermount.
