Current implementation contradicts our general Makefile philosophy: i.e. you won't get what you expect when you run "make all". While "all" is defined as:

ifeq ($(FLAVOUR), enterprise)
all: build-package build-root rsync build-server rsync-server
ifeq ($(FLAVOUR), live)
all: build-package build-root build-boot build-live

running "all" for LiveCD would result in long-time and useless "build-root" run, while the actual building of Live CD's root and image is done in "build-live". "build-boot" is undefined for Debian and thus it would fail.

It can be fixed in two ways:
  1. define "all" in build/debian/Makefile,
  2. fix process to do truly separate "build-root" and "build-live" steps, so they can be initiated on demand.

According to manual:

lh_build is a meta-helper. It calls all necessary live-helper programs in the correct order to complete the bootstrap, chroot, binary, and source stage.

I guess these stages map directly on our "build-root", "build-boot", "build-live" concept.
