Do NOT execute any manual commands inside the buil-chroot, this
tends to lead to an unmaintainable system pretty soon. ;)

Instead copy files as needed from outside the chroot to the chroot,
preferably writing your own /etc/grml/fai/config/scripts/ script.
(Just check out the existing ones, it's fairly simple using $target
& CO.)
