Doh! Good point. I don't have an answer for that one.

Sorry, I don't know of any manual besides the web page and the man
page. There are some examples in the package, I would suggest to just
try to use them, and see what happens and how it works.
Copy the example stage4.spec, edit, then run
catalyst -f stage4.spec
For embedded things I would seriously consider making a new profile.
It may also be neccessary to make a copy of /etc/catalyst/catalyst.conf
and specify that with -c, in order to have special environment
settings during the build. Some examples from my env file:
export INPUT_DEVICES="evdev keyboard mouse"
export VIDEO_CARDS="intel vesa"
export LINGUAS="en sv"
