Well, what happens if you build the tools on a box that does have the
reiserfs header files and shared libraries, but then try running them on
a box without.

The desired behaviour would be that the tools work fine until you try to
access a reiserfs partition, whereupon they report an error gracefully.

Undesirable behaviour would be refusing to run at all, or crashing if
presented with a resierfs patition.

To be able to work without the reiserfs present we may need to load it
dynamically. (same for ext3, but that's more widely installed).
