Hi Rob,

Right, doing the chroot from within qemu avoids the issue with polluting the 
target/. Thanks for the example.
The chroot approach still suffers from the need of initially having higher 
privileges. Personally, I still prefer the sysroot option and avoid that need 
but either way helps me.
