I have the impression it doesn't really work for Tiger. I can't run the
bootstrap script inside the chroot (there is no uname) and once I leave
the chroot (to copy the file ;) ) I can't get in anymore. The dmg
appeared to be mounted on /mnt/gentoo and I had to unmount it because
hdiutil didn't like it. It wasn't mounted on my desktop anyway. Finder
can't open the dmg. ditto(1) doesn't seem to be able to cope with
copying files either, so I switched back to cp -R which worked like a
charm for me...
