If you're going to use a command-line tool, take the time to
learn "par". It reformats much more intelligently, although it has a
higher learning curve. You would need to install it as additional
software under either FreeBSD or Solaris, but at least for FreeBSD
there should be a port definition for it.
I doubt that you will regret the time you take to learn "par" over "fmt".
