Default Simple scaffolding problem

I have a collection of genomic contigs that I want to scaffold using a closely related species' genomic reference as the backbone. I just want to use the reference to orient and space the contigs, and then fill in gaps with Ns. What would be the best (and simplest) way to accomplish that?

ABACUS was designed for ordering contigs relative to a reference, and with IMAGE you can fill the gaps with your reads. Both programs are a part of the PAGIT pipeline. In my experience, ABACUS is quite straightforward to use but IMAGE is very buggy; it will change the name of you input files, create lots of temporary files and fail without clear warnings. Also, I recall having to change some of the code with IMAGE to get it working correctly.

Scaffold_builder ( looks straight-forward and could be a good tool for that purpose. Haven't had the time to test it myself yet though.
