		By now you'll probably be aware of this, but anyway: you
can't do stuff
		like this:
		   cd /src
		   tar -jxvf binutils-
		In a makefile each line is executed by a different subshell,
so the cd
		to /src won't affect the next line.

Yeah, unless you do it as a whole bunch of &&'s then it won't work.
However, the su and chroot commands definitely won't work in a single
makefile like that.  You'll have to specify su and chroot to execute some
new makefile so that when it enters the new environment, those will be
executed, otherwise I believe nothing after that will execute until the
chroot or su environment is exited.
