Oh, pc-cygwin.  So this is not an OpenBSD machine, rather a Windows
box using cygwin, correct?

I just tried a very similar command, on OpenBSD, and it worked for me. 
I would suggest not using constructs like 'mkisofs -o fileInThisDir.iso
-x fileInThisDir.iso .'.

My guess is that you've hit a bug in mkisofs on cygwin.  Try cd'ing
up a directory and using 'mkisofs -v -r -T -J -V "openbsd3.1" -b
i386/cdrom31.fs -c boot.catalog -o openbsd31.iso dirThatWasDot'.
