Summary0003777: Kali live cannot be build

Dear maintainers,

at the moment a customized kali-live-iso cannot be build. I believe, there is a bug in the live-build source of git. When I cloned the git by doing

git clone git://

and then in the live-build directory a

lb config

the livebuild structure will not beeing created correctly as it was some weeks ago. I believe, there is a bug in the auto/config script.

When you start

./ --distribution kali-rolling --verbose

it is stopping due to missing directories.

Steps To Reproduce

Doing as requested:

apt-get install curl git live-build cdebootstrap
cd live-build-config
./ --distribution kali-rolling --verbose

By the way: Is there a special reason, why kali build commads changed from "lb build" (as it is well documented in the live-build manual) to directly command "./"? I think, that makes things confusing.

Additional Information

All builds are made within a real kali live system. I used the latest kali-2016.2 as well as a self build version of 2016.1 with the same results.

Please "git pull" and you should be good again. By mistake I had committed a bad mirror in auto/config.
