Daniel has already given a good answer. I just want to dig a little
deeper at what looks like some basic confusion on your part about
auto/config. All it does is recreates the *top-level* files in the
config/ tree, leaving all of the rest of its contents alone. Likewise,
auto/clean only removes those files. The subdirectories, like
config/chroot_local-includes/ remain untouched by the default auto
scripts that ship with live-build. I think I was clear about this in the
manual section on this. But if you think it isn't clear enough & have a
proposal for how to clarify it, I'm all ears. :)
