I think the problem is the broadcom-sta-source, it's non-free. See 

To have it included you will have to use the --archives "main contrib 
non-free" option in live-build.

In live-build 3.x, a workaround to only have that non-free package 
installed but without having the contrib/non-free repository activated, 
and in this case because that package does not have more non-free 
dependencies, would be to download that package with wget into 
config/packages/ to have it installed in both chroot and binary (for the 

To have it only in chroot or only in binary you can put the package into 
config/packages.binary/ or config/packages.chroot/.
