Trying to make a backup with rear:
rear -v mkbackup 

I will get the following error:
2015-07-15 13:59:43 Including output/ISO/Linux-i386/82_create_iso_image.sh
2015-07-15 13:59:43 Starting '/usr/bin/mkisofs'

Use genisoimage -help
to get a list of valid options.

Report problems to debburn-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org.

When looking deeper, it is trying to run with the following options: -eltorito-alt-boot -e boot/efiboot.img -no-emul-boot

I am running rear 1.16
