rather than re-inventing the wheel, it would maybe make sense to use
directly webconverger, or at least base your work on that. it's the
leading state of the art and fully free live-distribution in that area.

above howto dates back to 2007. live-helper has developed a bit since

note that squeeze will not boot unless you have live-initramfs 1.157.4-1
(for iso), and not yet fixed for usb-hdd images.

'lh config -d squeeze --packages libbz2-1.0 && lh build' works for me
(using live-helper and live-initramfs snapshots).
so, must be an error on your side. i suggest you follow the 'howto

live-helper 1.x does by default not write to a log file.
