nrelease: Improve 'etc.hdd' creation to eliminate inconsistency
Previously, the 'etc.hdd' was created during the 'buildiso' target and
then updated in the 'pkgs' target. However, in the 'pkgs' target, only
the password files (i.e., master.passwd, passwd, group) were copied but
the password DBs (i.e., pwd.db, spwd.db) were not rebuild. This caused
an inconsistency in 'etc.hdd'. When a user tried manual installation
and forgot to run 'pwd_mkdb', the installed system would fail to add new
users and generate errors like:
> pw: user 'myuser' disappeared during update.
> adduser: ERROR: There was an error adding user (myuser).
This commit improves the creation of 'etc.hdd'. Reorder the 'customiso'
target *after* the 'pkgs' target, so we can simply copy the 'etc' to
'etc.hdd' and be done, without any further changes, and the resulting
password files and DBs are in consistency. In addition, this avoids
adding the 'installer' user to the 'etc.hdd' and so we get a cleaner
system by default.
