For packages that do not support calling chroot() themselves, it is often useful to construct a directory tree containing the program and any necessary dependencies and data. Since GARstow already knows about dependencies, it would be possible to implement a make chroot target in GARstow that would create a suitably-populated chroot tree for a package.

A Python script to do this is included in GARstow 20040406 and later.
