 Thank you for your feedback.  While I have received various ideas and
 am still working on them, I recently added changes for the followng:

 1. Use $TARGET and $TARGET_ARCH in ISO image names.  Now it is like
    the following:


    Also, SHA-256 checksum files have been added in the same

 2. Use a clean build environment.  This should fix an iso9660 format
