I am not really after a kiosk.  What I am really after is a very striped down 
live-cd that only runs iceweasel w/ noscript and a couple of other very 
usefull add-ons.  It will be used only for online financial transactions.

figured that as the cause why some options had changed.  

I recieved an off list email and the correspondant instructed me thus

LH_BOOTSTRAP_FLAVOUR="" in file bootstrap , and remove option
--bootstrap-flavor minimal

I ran $ lh_clean then $ nano bootstrap and set LH_BOOTSTRAP_FLAVOUR="" as 
instructed and now the build seams to be working.
