The current status of the package hfsutils v332 is really out-of-date
compared to Apple sources  v589.
Various GNU/Linux distributions approach this package in many different
- Debian still maintains it the outdated v332 
- Fedora uses a more recent version v540  which doesn't provide
anymore mkfs.hfs. A package from another source could create new
- Gentoo uses the same old version v332 
As I don't use this package anymore and I don't think a 10 years old
package should live in the official repositories I plan to move hfsutils
to the AUR.
If someone has a better idea or wants to maintain hfsutils please let me
know. If not I'll try to update hfsutils in the AUR to v540.
