It is scheduled to have more control about this in future releases.

Meanwhile, if you use the recommended version of live-package (the one in 
unstable) you should look at ".stage" directory in "debian-live" workdir, 
there could be inside some files, if present the corrispondent action is 
already done, if not it will be took again.

filenames - actions (in order)

bootstrap - cdebootstrap of system (base debian installation).
chroot	- chroot configured and packages installed.
image_binary - rootfs compressed and [iso-image | netboot-tarball] ready to be 
burnt / tranfered to the server.
image_source  - {optional} also source packages image is ready.

So delete the file corresponding to the action you need to repeat and the 
followers and regive the make-live command.

In the future maybe a make-live switch like --action=name will do exactly
