   mount it first, which requires root on anything other than the

Not completely true, you can do this on GNU/Linux to if you setup
things a bit.  But I see your point.  But I still think that providing
a way to make a ext2fs image would still be nice, you can print a
message telling the user that she must be root or something.

   I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to make it copy stuff to a FAT
   floppy image with mtools.

Eech, stick with iso.

   Hmm, but configure should just decide not to provide the iso target
   if it can't find mkisofs... You should still be able to do
   everything else.

No, it should still provide it even if mkisofs (or mk*fs) can't be
found.  Otherwise it is broken.
