Well, my permissions must be messed up somewhere because:

pluto$ man mtree
No manual entry for mtree
pluto$ man ls
No manual entry for ls

Does it actually recreate the permissions or just compare them?  Is there 
a way to use it to compare permissions without actually writing anything 
to disk/making changes?
