Well, Ubuntu (I'm running Hardy) has a package named 'ddrescue' which
installs a program named 'dd_rescue'.  It would appear that the binary
is the Garloff version.  

$ dd_rescue
dd_rescue: (fatal): both input and output have to be specified!

dd_rescue Version 1.13, garloff at suse.de, GNU GPL
($Id: dd_rescue.c,v 1.55 2007/03/18 14:29:10 garloff Exp $)
dd_rescue copies data from one file (or block device) to another.

Works fine for me, but I didn't quite follow all the ins and outs of
your e-mail.  I had never heard of dd_rhelp.
