I had already built those for myself and if you believe the performance claims of the ntfs-3g team it should be great. I will "update" to the submitted builds to test them but I doubt that there will be any problems to report. Thanks Joe1962.
BTW when I compiled fuse-2.7.0 with --exec-prefix=/ all went well and I upgraded to it. When I then compiled ntfs-3g-1.9.13 it still complained about fuse needing --exex... Did I miss something?
