"chroot" refers to the program chroot that modifies 
the base directory a program runs under.  In this 
context one would build an filesystem tree (the chroot 
environment) where the package builds will take place.  
Any modifications that are made durring the make can 
easily be taken care of by just rebuilding the 
environment between package builds.
