Um, I'm not sure that pam_chroot is appropriate: the URL describes
how to run sshd with privilege sepeartion.

There are fakeroot (which is buggy) and pseudo syscall intercepters
that +/- the prefix implied by chroot(2).

There are other means to avoid needing root as well. But needing root
and building 32 bit on 64 bit are only incidentally related.
