I don't know anything about lfscmd-tool but the above command tries to
source the first "chroot" found using PATH, which probably ends up
sourcing /bin/chroot. If you want to source a script called "chroot" in
the current directory you have to do

. ./chroot


Where...the ENIAC is equipped with 18000 vacuum tubes and weighs 30 tons,
computers in the future may have 1000 vacuum tubes and perhaps weigh just
1-1/2 tons.
