Yes, you need an entry there, in the normal way. The chroot environment
should never be aware that it is chroot'ed.
So, in the chroot'ed /etc/passwd you put a normal entry, no /./ tricks.
Then, in the "host" /etc/passwd you put the /./ trick to the chroot
Make sure the uid's match though.
I use this successfully to "host" a RH7.3 installation inside a Debian
Sarge installation. We have a commercial app that requires RH7.3 for
support to be happy.
