Well, I was thinking to abolish the chroot entirely.

Say my i386 Debian Sarge is mounted on /os/deb32. Then, having configured
the ldconfig, just launch ooffice (or any other tools not available in
amd64 yet) as /os/deb32/usr/bin/ooffice -- no bind mount, no dchroot, no
various sym-links.

theoretically, should it work?
