Fdupes is indeed the type of app i was looking for.  I did run into
one catch with it though, on first run it trounced down into a NetApp
snapshot directory.  Dupes galore...

It would be nice if it kept a log too, so that if the files are the
same on a second go around it didn't have to md5 every file all over
