Yes - for your sanity.  For just one or two users you might just use
 useradd inside the chroot and give it the same parameters  as in 64 land.
 Here's the command I used  when I set my personal chroot up a year or so ago
 (from my notes)
       useradd -g 1006 -u 1006 -G 5,10,11,16,18,19,100 fellows
       passwd fellows
 Obviously you have to use your uid, gid an groups list values.

I quickly decided I did not want to use the sam personal home directory for
both environments. So I did this (again from my notes)
 I created on 64 /home/fellows/home32, copied ~/{.bashrc,bash_profile, .ssh} 
to it. On 32 I did 
   usermod -d /home/fellows/home32 fellows 
 to make a different home directory 

This way I could do selective sharing by means of copying or symlinks yet keep 
32 and 64 bit versions of programs from using the same "dot" files.
