it requires a file describing the layout of the pool you wish to create 
- something completely different from cluster.xml or cluster.conf.

This command is one that you would only run once to write labels out to 
the devices.  Once the labels are written, pool_assemble is used to 
assemble them.  you can find more information by looking at the various 
pool man pages.

an example file might be:
#begin pool config file
poolname foo
subpools 1
subpool 0 0 1 gfs_data
pooldevice 0 0 /dev/sdb
#end pool config file

The above file would write the label onto sdb.  a subsequent 
pool_assemble would create a device (/dev/pool/foo) composed of 

For more information: 'man 5 pool_conf'
