Installwatch will work fine in the chroot environment once you have
compiled the non static version of fileutils. I compile fileutils shared
as the FIRST job in the chroot environment. Install watch works via the
ldso LD_PRELOAD mechanism and newly created/installed files can not be
monitored if the install,mv,cp,ln,... commands are using a static
linked open.

If you follow the book , Installwatch will only work for packaages installed
after fileutils.

I do not know if there is some reason to not move the fileutils install
from it's current position to the front of the list. You would probably
want to reinstall it after gcc to compile with dynamic gcc. However , it
must be compiled first to log gcc.
