I think that was me using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I simply
built the live-boot, live-build and live-config packages from the git
repositories, using the instructions from the manual.
I then moved the likely looking .debs into position in
packages.chroot, not really having a clue what was needed/would get it

lb config \
--binary-images hdd \
--archive-areas 'main contrib non-free' \
--mirror-bootstrap http://danny:3142/ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ \
