This does not sound correct. They would only build those LuCI sub-packages 
being included in the image (luci-base, luci-theme-bootstrap, 
luci-mod-network, luci-mod-system, luci-mod-status, ...) and they mostly 
depend on stuff being present in the default image anyway.

There would be no need at all to build any non-included LuCI package in phase1.
