Here is a prebuilt RPM for THC Secure Delete, which includes 'sfill' as one of four commands, each command works with either directories, files, or file systems: http://rpmseek.com/rpm/secure_delete-3.1-alt1.i586.html?hl=com&cx=858:S:0:2269957:0:0:0

Also if for some reason the RPM fails to install, download it and compile from source: http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Security/THC-SecureDelete-10390.shtml 

This should get you going, good luck!
