Other than a dump/restore of the file system I'm not aware of any tool for that purpose. And it is seldom necessary, given the design of ext2/ext3, rieserfs, or XFS, providing that there's a reasonable amount of free space on the FS. The only times I've seen fragmentation affect a Unix/Linux file system is when the FS has been critically short of free space and there have been a lot of file creates/deletes over a period of time.
