I want to mount a virtual disk file that has been formatted with ext2. I want to do

sudo mount -t ext2 -o loop my-file mount-point

ext2fuse and macfuse from MacPorts are installed. I can't find an explanation of options for ext2fuse; I tried ext2fuse my-file mount-point -o loop but it sat there quietly doing nothing.

I think macfuse is no longer maintained and it does no work on 64-bit kernels.

You'll need to install fuse4x or osxfuse instead. The MacPorts project has been fixing ext2fuse's dependency for fuse4x, but I am not sure if it's working yet.
