There are a few things you can do, each of them a bit dangerous:
1: Upgrade the 4.X machine.
2: Hack around the 4.X kernel to get minimal UFS1 support, diffing
the UFS code bases would help here but this is still dangerous.
3: Try to find a utility which could do the conversion (I don't
know of one).
4: Re-newfs the disk and recopy your data.
Sorry for the bad news Brandon. :(
