Yes, it has always just worked for me when target <= host and I didn't
want to build ports etc. It's sometimes tempting to jump ahead
and do more withing initially noticing problems. So if someone tries
to build a port within the chroot then they might have random breakage.
That is mostly what my warning is for. I made a few mis steps along the
way to what I have now and it will get better in the future. I would
suggest that you mention the hooks of
to point people in the right direction even if they are only partially
implemented. Looks like I will be commiting my changes to osreldate
and uname(3) to make this stuff work through out.
Only after some other hacks did I discover these hooks :-(
