|Beating a dead horse, again and again... Ikonboard converter [message #163501]

I know it's been asked several times, but not for several years. Has anyone got ANYTHING regarding a ikonboard (IBF) converter?
If someone has anything to at least get me started. I can program in Unix scripting, PHP, some C (mostly file manipulation). I'd be more than happy to share whatever I can come up with.
A little background. I help a friend by supporting some forums. Back in '01 when we started, the servers were FreeBSD and didn't have MySQL. We were using ikonboard with a DBM database files (.db) The current ISP for switched servers on us back in '07. After almost 2 weeks of runaround they finally put back a BSD server for our sites. Well, they did it again, and now they denying that there's been any change.
I downloaded the entire site. I was able to get it working on a BSD box I'd setup that morning, and it would not work on my usual Linux box. I've been able to convert the DBM to MySQL, now I need to convert it to FUD.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
