Please find attached tarball which includes the ebuild file along with digest and Manifest files.

The application mkfile is a standard utility available on SunOS and other platforms. It is used for creating zero byte files.  It can be used to create large files (ie: 2GB) without waiting for the file to fill up.

I suggest app-admin/mkfile.  This ebuild has no dependencies.

Ben, please do not attach tarballs to bugzilla -- plaintext files are plenty ok -- please also do NOT attach digests, manifests or portage ChangeLogs -- just the ebuild and whatever patches. 

Please re-open after correcting.
