no syslinux-live themes provided, but expected by live-build USB-HDD mode

Bug Description

I am using the syslinux-themes-ubuntu-oneiric in conjunction with the live-build package to create a live system. When building an ISO image the isolinux bootloader is used and everything works fine. However, when trying to create a USB-HDD image, the syslinux bootloader is used and then the build process fails because the theme is in the "wrong" directory.

Currently, the theme is installed at /usr/share/syslinux/themes/ubuntu-oneiric/isolinux-live, however, it is expected to be in /usr/share/syslinux/themes/ubuntu-oneiric/syslinux-live. I don't know if its a bug of this package or should be related to live-build.

At the moment I just use a symbolic link syslinux-live to isolinux-live to make it work.

This problem exists in 12.04, with syslinux-themes-ubuntu-precise. OTOH, syslinux-themes-debian-squeeze works without problems.

I have similar issue with live build 3.0-a46 and wheezy. The syslinux-themese stuff seems to be broken and should be used ATM.
