Installing GNU cp is counter-productive on Tiger (unlike on Panther) because only the Apple-supplied cp has the resource fork patches.
Of course you could submit the appropriate patches to the GNU project or the Fink project (or just patch your own version of /sw/bin/cp) The Apple source code for 'cp' is available from www.opensource.apple.com (cp.c is under "file_cmds").
The code that handles the copying of resource forks is in copyfile.c (which is in "Libc")
