documented the mklibs.sh situation
||The files in this directory are used to build the Debian installer.
||An overview of how the installer is built:
||* mklibs.sh is used for library reduction. It will eventually be in its own
|| package, but for now you must copy it into this directory from the
|| boot-floppies cvs tree.
||* sources.list is used to configure apt to download udebs from a mirror.
|| You can change it to use whatever debian archive is convenient for you.
||* lists/base contains udebs that are put on all systems; the other files
|| in that directory define different types of debian installer systems
|| by listing the udebs that they are composed of.
||* The Makefile has a TYPE variable that selects one of the lists. Eg,
|| "fakeroot make TYPE=net"
||* Apt is used to download the required udebs.
||* If you have some udebs that are not available on your mirror yet,
|| you can drop them in localudebs/ and they will be used.
||* Dpkg is used to unpack the udebs into the build directory.
||* A customized set of reduced libraries is generated to correspond to the
|| udebs that were installed.
||* "make demo" (run as root) will chroot into the system.
