I've just finished building an image using it. Bit of a struggle as I had to
patch one of the files and my lack of understanding of the chattr command in
ubuntu caused me no end of problems. Basically when you run the build again
after the first failure you need to clean up properly using chattr -R -i before
you can even remove one of the folders.
