       mkdb - create a new GNATS database

       mkdb databasename

       Looks up databasename in the GNATS databases file and creates a database
       in the location specified there.  mkdb creates the directory and
       populates it with a set of default files copied from the
       /usr/share/gnats/defaults directory.

       Note the implications of this: an entry in databases must be created
       before mkdb is run.

       The command should be run as the GNATS user, by default gnats.

              Specifies the name of the database to be created.
