Looks like something was changed in 4.05, since this thing [#1] was 
tested (4.04)...

this is when using SYSLINUX (this is when copy "arch" and installing 
syslinux manually, not using hybrid method that ISOLINUX is used)

------ booting ---------
SYSLINUX 4.05 0x4f5727e3 Copyright (C) 1994-2011 H. Peter Anvin et al
Could not find kernel image: boot/syslinux/whichsys.c32
boot: syslinux/pwd

----- syslinux.cfg -----
DEFAULT loadconfig

LABEL loadconfig
   CONFIG archiso.cfg
   APPEND ../../

Workaround for now is using absolute path on destination medium|
sed -i "s|../../|/arch|" /mnt/arch/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg|
