    If by copy you meant in

    Then, tar up the whole system you want on the final system, and untar it into the /livecd directory (or copy it, directories and all, as you prefer).

    there is a clue in the next sentence

    Copy your /var and /etc directories to /livecd/backups/{var,etc}


    That means duplicate the parts of the currently running system, starting at the root of your file syste, /, that you are using to build the LiveCD in the /livecd directory tree.

    For example


    cp -pR /etc /livecd
    as well as other cp commands


    or


    tar -cf /tmp/mytarfile /
