Note1: If you want, you can adjust the releng-scripts, there is no need 
anymore to make a chroot for archiso (even for build an i686-iso on 
x86_64 host)(*), now is safe for build to work directly without it. Just 
ensure that your pacman.conf is clean, (does not enable any repo that 
you do not want to be used, or does not ignore any package). Working in 
this ways allow to work with signed packages, save space, and...

Note2: There is a new build mode <all> maybe can be used in releng-scripts

Quote from commit:
This mode allow to build all 6 ISOs in just one step if build type is<all>.
So "build.sh build all all" ->  (single-i686, single-x86_64, dual) X 
(netinstall, core).

Note that the<purge>  command is executed between each build step to 
save space,
so do not use this mode if you want to keep all temporal files in work_dir.

(*) Under i686-host you can only build i686-isos only, but in 
x86_64-host (x86_64-kernel/x86_64-userspace OR 
x86_64-kernel/i686-userspace) you can build x86_64-isos and i686-isos :)
