openSUSE 12.3 (and most likely previous version of openSUSE 12.*)
=============
genisoimage-1.1.11-10.1.1.x86_64
genisoimage: unrecognized option '-efi-boot'
Usage: genisoimage [options] -o file directory ...

=> -e FILE (option is missing)

As a result it is not possible to create a bootable UEFI CD-ROM image. The -b
option is not working for UEFI.
Fedora 18 and Ubuntu 12.10 do have the -efi-boot option and booting UEFI ISO
image does work on fedora 18 and ubuntu 12.10.
Please upgrade the genisoimage package asap with -efi-boot option included. As
a result of this Relax-and-Recover (http://www.relax-and-recover.org/) cannot
create a bootable recovery ISO image on openSUSE where UEFI is active.

fedora18
========
$ rpm -q genisoimage
genisoimage-1.1.11-14.fc18.x86_64

$ genisoimage -efi-boot
I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)
genisoimage: Missing pathspec.
Usage: genisoimage [options] -o file directory ...

=> -e FILE, -efi-boot FILE Set EFI boot image name

ubuntu 12.10
============
genisoimage 1.1.11-2ubuntu3 (Linux)

# genisoimage -e
genisoimage: option requires an argument -- 'e'

=> -e FILE, -efi-boot FILE Set EFI boot image name

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.genisoimage -efi-boot
2.
3.
Actual Results:
genisoimage: unrecognized option '-efi-boot'
Usage: genisoimage [options] -o file directory ...

Expected Results:
$ genisoimage -efi-boot
I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)
genisoimage: Missing pathspec.
