Chrooting into a cross-compiled system image seems hard to realize,
unless you can install a good simulator for the target processor and all
the devices of your target machine.
Chrooting in a build environment brings constraints for no great
benefits. IMHO, some environments variables and simlinks should be
enough to have an ergonomic dev environment.
