I'd say you're not getting the message.
You don't need to do it. Period. Full stop. There is no insight or
knowledge needed beyond that statement because it simply is not needed and
highly recommended you do NOT do it as it be destructive.
ext2/3 are not DOS based file systems. That you even *found* the old
e2defrag is a wonder in it's own right.
Forget about it, continue living and let linux do it's thing.
*IF* you feel that a defrag *HAS* to be done, which I very much doubt,
then dump the FS and reload it.
debian FS != DOS FS
And it is better that way :)
