sorry, late to the game, but if the users are not in the database, then they wont be associated with existing posts... so in addition to creating the user post count, do you need/want to associate them with their old posts?  

Thanks for the follow up. I think what I will do is update their post counts once they have registered. I've created a sticky post asking them to check in once they've registered. I then built a tool that will query the old database to get their old post count and then update their new post count in wp_sfmembers. Not ideal but it should get the job done.

If you can extract all users post counts into a table then the sfmembers table could be updated in one go for everybody with a simple update query...
