You don't need Lenny repos on your build server. You just need
live-helper and preferably also live-initramfs . You can get backports
of those packages, or build them yourself.
(I'm using live-helper from git mostly directly and casper instead of
live-initramfs and my target is an Etch system. I have a simple wrapper
script to add the helpers directory to the PATH)
