 Unfortunately I don't think there may be any Unix utilities.  However, you can do it on a PC without requiring DBase.  Install an MS Office product like Excel, and make sure you include the DBase driver (do a custom install, or re-run setup).  Then, you can open DBase files in Excel and export from there.
