Ther is no "modern equivalent" - mkisofs is the tool of choice,
and it's very modern because it does the job well which it is
intended for.

Anyway, it does not belong to the base OS, so it needs to be
installed by the port / package "cdrtools". More information
via "man mkisofs" is available then.
