Bug#320205: debian-cd: Don't require source mirror for building only binaries

Package: debian-cd
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

The attached patch allows to build only binary CDs without having sources 
on the local mirror.

In the current build.sh script, 'make list' is always called which fails 
if there are no sources on the mirror. The new version allows to set 
NOSOURCE which makes sure that both bin-lists and bin-official_images are 

The old envvar IMAGETARGET is still supported for backwards compatibility 
and should result in the old behavior.
