How can I find my World's Strongholds?

Is there any reliable tool for determining the locations of Fortresses and Nether fortresses in Minecraft?
We migrated our server to the latest version of Bukkit. Since we have quite a bit of the map already revealed, I'm not sure whether we still have a chance of finding a fortress in the overworld.
So instead of running around the map, I'd like to use a tool to find their locations and then check whether those chunks were already generated.

Similarly, is there such a tool for Nether fortresses? (Even this isn't such a pressing issue, since there are supposed to be many of them.)

It isn't clear from your question - do you know that eye of ender has ability to locate an ender portal? – Olegs Jeremejevs Dec 25 '11 at 15:11
@MyFaJoArCo Umm... no? Is that somehow related? :3 (TBH, I like surprises, so I haven't studied the updated content at all. The question, however, is something the players on my server will want to know.) – ver Dec 25 '11 at 15:15
The Eye of Ender, when thrown like a snowball, will fly towards the closest stronghold. You can read more about how to get and use it on the Minecraft wiki. Tell, if this answers your question :) – Olegs Jeremejevs Dec 25 '11 at 15:26

This shall help a lot!!-1.8.1

You need your seed, then get a program that is a fortress locator, it will tell you the coordinates of all 3 fortresses.

This is for strongholds, not Nether Fortresses.
