We do automated, staged building of ISOs for different platforms in VMs
and are then fetched and packaged into the final ISO. This is
non-trivial to setup and there are no ready-made instructions for this.

You could have a look the root Makefile.kmk and
src/VBox/Additions/Makefile.kmk for a start.
