don't use live-helper from ubuntu, it's not maintained there and thus
please install the version from sid (it's just shell scripts, no

that's not strange, that's normal.. the build is chrooted in order to
use the toolchain from the distribution we are building.

the automatic creation of usb images with grub is currently not
supported, use syslinux.
