Ok I'll try when I'll have some time.

I guess you speak about kernel configs here. I never used genkernel but if
it use the livecd config for generating ppl's kernel, ppl will really have
ugly kernels :)

I didn't read the readme yet but please if you create a livecd script, split
it in many function/subfunction which we could reimplement somewhere in a arch
specific file. And keep the opportunity to have simple loop or cloop file for
livecd. hppa 64bit kernel can't use gcloop yet due to compiler problems.
Ah yes, I just commited hppa specific files/changes to catalyst for stage
building. I copied hppa.py from ia64.py but it seems that ia64.py is b0rked
at line 18 : class arch_ia64(build.generic):
should be builder.generic I think.
