No need to pass $(BINARIES_DIR) as it now is in the environment.

Would it make sense to run this under fakeroot?

Also, I wonder if we could instead call these scripts for each image we
generate, so it will already be run under fakeroot.

Not sure how to pass the image type to the script, though.
Maybe, something like:
  post-image.sh <image-file> <image-type> <compression>

with image-type ∈ {tar,ext2,squashfs...}
and  compression ∈ {none,gz,bz2,lzma,xz...}

And the script would typically contain:

  #!/bin/sh
  img_type="${1}"
  img_file="${2}"
  img_comp="${3}"
  case "${img_type}" in
    tar)
      handle_tar "${img_file}" "#{img_comp}"
      ;;
    squashfs)
      handle_squash "${img_file}"
      ;;
    *)
      # Ignore other types
     ;;
  esac

At least, I find it more interesting.

Yann E. MORIN.
