sugar-build is not obsolete. If you want the very latest sugar from git or
an approach that works independently from the linux distribution you are
using, it's the way to go.

sugar-runner is just a script to run sugar without setting it up as a
separate login manager session, it replaces sugar-emulator. You can use
sugar-runner inside sugar-build (through the osbuild run command). Or you
can use it directly if you distribution has recent enough sugar packages
(on Fedora 20 for example).

Is that clear enough?
