Thanks, that seems to work. Almost: kdelibs has a build-dependency on 
arts-dev that doesn't seem to exist. Have overriden it and'll see if it 

I have never before used chroot. Are there any docs that explains how to 
use it sensibly? What are the good practices of chroot-ing? E.g., in 
<buildroot>/var/cache/apt/archives I have created hard links to the 
debs in /var/cache/apt/archives, to avoid having to download loads of 
packages. Is this sound?
