Build LiveDVD with chroot official ubuntu method instead of remastersys

I think that after v6.0 final we should start working on building the disk with the "alternate" build method that Alex proposed a while ago. The initial work has been done by Alex [1] and I have managed to update this to work with version 6.0 [2]

This is the default method used by ubuntu to create flavors of the distribution and will make OSGeoLive more stable and more compatible with upstream changes over time.

This was our backup plan, but since remastersys failure, we now have to consider this as the main iso creation method for 6.0 too.

This is partially done in rev [8600]. I am going to close this one and create subtasks remaining.
