GSoC Idea: Fakechroot on FreeBSD; Ports building in clean non-root environment

Hi Theron,

Earlier in the year I experimented with a similar idea, although my
goal was quite different.  I eventually hit a roadblock that I wasn't
able to overcome: on FreeBSD, /usr/bin/cc and /usr/bin/c++ are
statically linked binaries.  The makes it impossible to intercept any
system calls made by the "victim" binary.  Would this be a problem for
what you're trying to do?  I'm not very familiar with the ports build
