lilybuntu2 is about ready. I've created the .iso and installed in a VM
for testing, all that's left is to test the doc-build in the VM.
building of LP itself went fine. Lilybuntu2 should be even easier for
folks than the previous version b/c now I already have the
lily-git.tcl script in user's home directory after installation. Just
have to log in & run the script to download source and get rolling.

It'll be easy for me to install those new packages and re-run the iso
creation. No worries, but here's the short version of how to create
lilybuntu (I did this on a spare drive, but it can be done in a VM
too, I assume):

1. Install ubuntu, reboot
2. Run all updates, reboot if asked
3. Enable src repos, refresh package lists
4. install LP build deps:
  sudo apt-get build-dep lilypond
5. install git and autoconf:
  sudo apt-get install git-core gitk autoconf

   1. use lily-git.tcl to grab source files
   2. go to source dir and do "./" ; make ; make doc
   3. if all compiles, move on to iso creation...

6. Download & install "remastersys":
7. copy lily-git.tcl script file into /etc/skel/
8. modify /etc/remastersys.conf as desired (change .iso name,
  default live session username, etc)
9. Remove non-essential desktop software as desired
10. create iso:  sudo remastersys dist
11. new iso is in /home/remastersys/remastersys/
12. test iso by installing in VM and repeating steps above for
getting source files and building lp and docs
