That should be fine... I was hoping to go through and revise that part 
of the build soon anyway. It should be noted that any time you stop the 
build after you've entered chroot (or the build fails due to errors) you 
should run 'make unmount' and remove the mounted directories for chroot, 
ie, dev/pts, dev/shm, dev, proc and sys. That way it *should* be mounted 
cleanly again when you run the build again. In any case, it needs to be 
smoothed out.

Sorry for the trouble, thanks for the report. I guess let's get that 
into trunk then.
