Not 100% sure, but it looks like alpine-iso is not backwards
compatible since it has been set to use syslinux-5 (which is not in
alpine 2.5).
You could try to checkout an older version of alpine-iso (before the
"support for syslinux-5" commit) which should probably still work.
You can do that by going into alpine-iso dir and: git checkout
If that still doesn't work, you could try to checkout some older
commit and see if that works.
