Enabling HFSX support?

I'm not sure where to post this, since it really doesn't fit in any of the four English-language forums.

When I attempt to list files in an HFSX-formatted partition, I get the message:
Support for this filesystem hasn't been enable during compilation.
This is true both for the Mac OS X Intel binaries (6.14 and 7.0) and when compiling form source (on a Mac OS X Intel machine).

I looked through the INSTALL and README files, as well the output of ./configure -h (which includes other FS enable options, but nothing HFS-related).

I searched the forums, found a couple posts that briefly mentioned, but no information. (, ... t3197.html)

Any help appreciated. =)

The message is misleading. The possibilities to list files from HFS/HFS+/HFSX/... has never been implemented.
When you are on a good HFSX partition, TestDisk should list " + Backup" on the last lie of the screen: it means both the main superblock and its backup are present.
