I prefer this method, and this is what we already use in the LiveCD 
Makefiles (minus the su -c). We have specifc targets that are made after 
chroot, so chroot is done once, all the packages needed built in that 
process, and chroot exited.

Unfortunately, it's a little more work to set that up in the Makefile 
jhalfs is creating via a for loop. Perhaps after some time...
