create a cd9660 or ffs file system image from a directory tree

NetBSDĀ® makefs(8) creates a file system image from a directory tree without the need for superuser privileges. The MirBSD version fixes ECMA 119, SUSP and RRIP (Rock Ridge) compliance and adds features.

Supported target filesystem types are:

   cd9660   ISO 9660 (ECMA 119) compatible filesystem images, with
            Rock Ridge, El Torito, and other features
   ffs      4.2FFS, the BSD Fast Filesystem, also known as UFS1;
            UFS2 (with "-o version=2")

The images created can be of a fixed (predefined) size, given on the command line, or sized automatically. Permission bits are taken from the source directory tree but may be overridden using an mtree file.
