Please consider one thing which has  gone bad on the web: Static before 

If adding a file is done only seldom, please try to generate the gopher 
menu only once. Then you save  on any dynamic bugs and remote execution 
holes which made the web the ghetto it is now.                          

Many gopher daemons support this. I am the author of geomyidae


There you create an index.cgi or  index.dcgi file in some directory and 
it will be executed, when some  client accesses that directory. You can 
then generate  some menu. Geomyidae  supports dir listings  too. Please 
see the  manpage for examples on  how to write such  scripts. There are 
also some in the distribution.
