Should lh_build produce an iso?

Hi Tom,

I said to use the same options to lh_*config* as for make-live, not
the same options to lh_build as for make-live.

Running lh_config just creates config/, which you can update to taste.

If there's no iso generated, it's probably due to some error.  Did you
look through the output for something unexpected?  I use something
like the following:

time sudo nice lh_build 2>&1 |tee binary.log

<./binary.log grep -vwe '^P: Retrieving' -e '^P: Validating' \
-e '^P: Extracting' -e '^P: Unpacking' -e '^P: Configuring' \
-e '^Reading' -e ^Building -e ^Initializing -e ^Writing \
-e ^Get -e ^Fetched -e ^Selecting -e '^(Reading' \
-e ^Unpacking -e ^Setting -e ^Need -e 'packages upgraded' \
-e 'packages will be' -e '^$' -e '^M'

Daniel: lh_build should also reject or otherwise handle extra
arguments (like lh_clean bug).

BTW, why not run eg aptitude, wget, ... and everthing else with some
incarnation of --quiet?  Or add an option to pass such an option to
all the tools.
