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.
