What's wrong with cdrom:b ?

None. The infrastructure to create this images has not been working in the
original 1.6 sources. It has been fixed in the meantime (at least in current,
I don't know if it has been pulled up) and a working 1.6 image has been
created. Nevertheless: with using the original 1.6 release sources you will
not be able to cd to src/etc, say "make iso-image" and get a bootable CD.
