not yet, but newest live-config does have a generic debconf interface
now so stuff for random other packages can be configured through that
(at build-time).

however, your problem is a different one: live-build removes adjtime
unconditionally since it used to contain only the time
offsets/corrections and *not* the UTC-or-not-UTC flag. that's very
unfortunate that this went into that file.

but anyhow, both live-build (to strip instead of remove /etc/adjtime)
and live-config (to use /etc/adjtime instead of /etc/default/rcS for the
runtime configuration through the boot parameters/environment variabes)
need to be updated for that. i'll get to it somewhen next week.

thanks for making us aware of it.
