yes. some userspace code is also provided.

I think this is the problem - at the moment there are two
versions of libacl, & you're trying to use Andreas' version
here, whereas you need to be using the version that comes
with XFS (in order to use the XFS ACL support).
If you're using the prepackages rpms from sgi, then acl-devel
is the package you'll want to install. Otherwise, you can get
the code from cmd/acl in the cvs tree, compile & install that.
Once you have the XFS libacl installed, then you can move on
to patching the fileutil code. At least, I assume this is what
was suggested - I haven't tried the fileutil patch myself.
