 Thanks for the explanation, but now I'm more confused.  Looking at
the stable book online, there is no 6.1.3.  Ah, your reference to
binutils implies 6.13, in which case you should have passed through
6.8 (populating /dev) and particularly 6.8.2 *after* you entered
chroot - /dev/pts gets mounted near the end of that page, just
before the note to disregard a specific warning message.

 To repeat myself, you need to repeat the commands in 6.8.2 each
time you enter chroot.

 The mounts which you copied into your script are fake mounts, to
keep the host system aware of what is going on.
