To install zfs on snow leopard.txt

download the zfs package from: http://zfs.macosforge.org/trac/wiki/downloads
OR: https://github.com/dustin/mac-zfs/downloads
I used zfs-110 binaries.

$ gzcat zfs-119bin.tgz |tar -xvf -
cp build/Leopard_Release/zfs /usr/sbin/zfs
cp build/Leopard_Release/zpool /usr/sbin/zpool
cp build/Leopard_Release/libzfs.dylib /usr/lib/libzfs.dylib

$ rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/zfs.kext

cp -R build/Leopard_Release/zfs.fs /System/Library/Filesystems/zfs.fs
cp -R build/Leopard_Release/zfs.kext /System/Library/Extensions/zfs.kext
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/zfs.kext
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Filesystems/zfs.fs
chown -R root:wheel /usr/sbin/zpool
chown -R root:wheel /usr/sbin/zfs
chown -R root:wheel /usr/lib/libzfs.dylib
Now reboot.. and pray..
