I have looked through the man pages and even the source for star, and
don't see how to create ISO9660 images. It seems only to be able to
create its own format backups, which require installing star on the
target, are not bootable and installable, etc.

Here's a thought on that, if the read length is not the same as the
expected length, the error is really "file size changed during read" and
the current length can be found with stat() or similar. I'm surprised
that this doesn't come up more often, when doing backups where files
(such as logs) are growing, the available data size is growing, is that
currently handled properly?
I would need to rethink the problem.
mkisofs is not a backup tool.
If you like to do backups, use apropriate tools (e.g. star).
Am I missing something, or are you taking the opportunity to draw
attention to one of your other tools, which does things unrelated to the
topic under discussion?
