If you use schroot, it takes care of setting up the Linux personality for you, just as linux32 does, so you don't need both. If your uname(2) call returns i86, then your system will be treated as i386, and i386 packages will be built. If it returns x86-64, then it will be treated as amd64. Linux personality support allows modifying the uname(2) call, so packages will be compiled and built properly.
