To join the chorus, "fsck does it".

#define WHO_NEEDS_NROFF	:-)

However, wasn't the purpose of mklost+found to forcibly allocate space
for filename relocation in said lost+found directory?  I mean, if fsck
creates the directory, that's all well and good, but if the filesystem
is bordering on completely full, doesn't that preclude reconnection of
lost inodes?  I suppose that if the filesystem is that full, it's most
likely a moot point anyway, but the idea did have some merit back when
disk space was a higher premium than it is now...
