Pungi - genisoimage not finding isolinux



I have am getting "genisoimage: Uh oh, I cant find the boot catalog
directory 'isolinux'!". Granted, my repository is a bit of a hack job:
I rsync from an Australian mirror (no local mirror in NZ) to a local
directory so I can generate builds while offline, and I exclude
several parts of the repo (exact rsync line below).

How does pungi/genisoimage locate the isolinux file? How can I debug/fix this?

cmdline:
$ sudo pungi --force -c kickstarts/pungi-f9-minimal.ks --nosource
--name XS --ver=0.5dev --discs=1 --nosplitmedia

error:
genisoimage 1.1.6 (Linux)

the first repo _does_ have isolinux.

How I rsync the F9 repo so that it fits in my laptop (suggestions for
a better lightweight mirror welcome):

RELEASE=rsync://mirror.internode.on.net/fedora-enchilada/linux/releases/9
rsync -rlptgHv -P --progress \
    --exclude ppc --exclude '*.html' --exclude SRPMS --exclude '*.ppc.rpm' \
    --exclude ppc64 --exclude source --exclude x86_64 --exclude debug
--exclude repoview \
    --exclude iso --exclude jigdo --exclude Live \
    --exclude 'kde*' --exclude 'openoffice*' --exclude 'openarena*' \
    --exclude '*-data-*' --exclude 'themes-*' --exclude 'koffice*' \
    $RELEASE /media/disk/xs/releases/

cheers,
