It is this whole problem that has caused me to never want to try to build 
things in chroots -- the problem of installing things that mess with 
daemons.  I've had MTAs restarted, cron restarted, etc.

I don't really think that chroot is the appropriate tool for this.  Why not 
something more strongly isolated, such as vserver, OpenVZ, or even Xen or 
UML for this?
