mount --bind would work, but you must ask yourself why you bother with
chroot if your just going to bind mount the entire filesystem into the
chroot jail anyway (which is just about what you must do for things to
work properly) when you bind mount /bin and /usr/bin you get all the
suids in those directories in the chroot, you also need /etc for the
global config files many programs use.
