genisoimage is a pre-mastering program for creating ISO-9660 CD-ROM
filesystem images, which can then be written to CD or DVD media using
the wodim program. genisoimage includes support for making bootable
"El Torito" CDs, as well as CDs with support for the
Macintosh HFS filesystem.
The package also includes extra tools useful for working with ISO images:
* mkzftree - create ISO-9660 image with compressed contents
* dirsplit - easily separate large directory contents into disks of
predefined size
* geteltorito - extract an El Torito boot image from a CD image
Please install cdrkit-doc if you want most of the documentation and
README files.

linux, and nor does it imply -lcap will work. Fix the detection code
to cope with this.
