I'll fix that.

The issue here is wether or not to clean the bootcd directory before copying
the files into it. If we don't need to clean the directory first then we can
have 'make bootcd' copy the files using dependencies which will be quite fast
the second time since only the changed files will be copied. If we need to
clean the directory first then all files must always be copied into the bootcd
directory. The problem with not cleaning the directory first is that the
bootcd directory may be inconsistent due to bootcds made previously from other
revisions. 'make livecd' have the same issue. I could go either way so I'll
let you decide.
