Bug#591469: live-helper: Problems encountered while building on a powerpc

Package: live-helper
Version: 2.0~a14-1
Severity: normal

Please take this report in the spirit of an "installation" report.

The following packages caused problems:

ndiff	- conflict with nmap
guymager & libguytools1	- not found
mdadm	- problems while building kernel initrd

I basically excluded them from the build via modifying the appropriate list.

The following config information in config/binary

# $LH_CHECKSUMS: set checksums
# (Default: true) 
LH_CHECKSUMS="true" changed to "md5" to make it work.

caused confusion, e.g. the error:
P: Begin creating binary truesum.txt...
xargs: truesum: No such file or directory

I.e. is "true" really the correct default?
