It seems that the problem is caused by the fact that lorax is very old in Fedora 16. Fedora 17 contains a newer version which actually works. The questions is - why? Building F17 boot.iso on Fedora 16 is not a supported use case? I believe the tool should at least notify me in that case. And why don't you push the latest version to all supported releases?
Lorax code always changes according to the needs of the next release that we need to compose. The tool is not really targeted for normal users, but for our release engineers, who use it in mock, so there's no point in pushing updates to older releases.
