live-build 3 for Ubuntu Oneiric images

Registered by Ricardo Salveti

Ubuntu is now also migrating to live-build 3 for Oneiric. As we're already using live-build 2 for Natty images, do the porting work to make sure we're at the same state as live-build 2 but with live-build 3. This will help us synchronizing the way we're building the images with Ubuntu, and also provide all the new features from live-build 3 for product owners that want to customize and create their images based on our LEB.
