mkchroot (create chroot-able directory tree)

mkchroot creates a chroot-able directory tree using hard links where
possible. The mkchroot package consists of 2 utilities: mkchroot and
addchroot. mkchroot creates a minimal initial tree. addchroot
then incorporates (installed) Slackware packages into that tree.

HOW IT WORKS: addchroot uses the FILE LIST portion of the package file
in /var/log/packages to install a package's directories and files.
To complete the process, addchroot chroots the install script from

addchroot knows about some "special" packages for which it does not
run the normal install script, e.g. bash and glibc. If you find a new
"special" package, please tell the author.
