Been there for a while, at least /lib/ldconfig/

The /lib/ldconfig/ conatins links to the actual system library
directories that aren't default anyway. Currently that means the
/emul/ia32-linux/... dirs. But the only affect this has is that
packages don't have to modify /etc/ld.so.conf anymore and the file is
left completly for the user to use.

Put your chroot into /etc/ld.so.conf if you like.
