while your Q is somewhat OT, here some ideas:
* use star or any other ACL awar tar replacement
* use a proper backup program, like Arkeia (free for 1 server)
* NFS can do ACLs, if properly patched. For example all SuSE systems do 
that very fine.
* backup files and ACLs separately (tar and getfacl/setfacl).
* use rsync with the ACL patch (http://lists.samba.org/archive/rsync/2004-May/009466.html)
* use Mondo Rescue (www.mondorescue.org), it does ACLs


PS: Mounting anything but NFS will give you suboptimal performance,
