Can I use genromfs as a replacement for 3dstool?

    I'm currently porting over Video Channels Creator (that homebrew that allows you to play jpgv movies on your 3DS) to Linux, but it uses a program called 3dstool to create a romfs.

    Although I could compile 3dstool on my pc (but that limits the architecture it can be ran on), the ability to create a romfs filesystem seems to be included on Linux systems with the command genromfs. Can I use that command instead of 3dstool or is that a different filesystem?
