You can do everything that mk-sbuild does for you manually, but when
you're setting up many different sbuild chroots, it makes things much
easier. [And it makes my response much simpler.]

The things that mk-sbuild installs are just sbuild, schroot, and
debootstrap, and possibly lvm2 if you're using lvm chroots; I actually
didn't notice that it even did that because I have all of them
installed. [And really, mk-sbuild *is* a sysadmin tool designed to
automate sysadmin tasks.]
