Yes, if you are building for newer than Fedora 9's mkinitrd, then you
have to do the initrd build by hand as you've done.  This is because
this had no place being in livecd-creator to begin with really.  I
updated the stock configs and put blinking warnings in the commit log
for that reason :-)

This is a warning that I should just kill.  In fact, done :-)

squashfs is (still) notorious about changing things, unfortunately --
although I'd think that the current F7 update kernel would have a new
enough squashfs in the kernel for the squashfs-tools. 

Unfortunately, the only real way to be able to handle this is
1) Install an older version of squashfs-tools on your build host
2) Build your image without compression (--skip-compression)
3) Have a kernel with a newer squashfs kernel module
