System: NetBSD plato 3.1 NetBSD 3.1 (XEN2_DOM0) #0: Wed Jan 17 15:40:34 CET 2007 root@plato:/usr/src/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/XEN2_DOM0 i386

When starting mklivecd iso it fails without any further information. After some debugging I realized that mkisofs does not handle the -nobak option (anymore?)
Simply: mklivecd iso (after previous steps as in manpage)
In file .mklivecd/mklivecd.conf changing MKISOFS_ARGS="-J -R -nobak -v" to MKISOFS_ARGS="-J -R -v" worked for me.
