Hi Daniel,

yup, I'm planning to keep a non chrooted build that you can enable in
prejs.json. Automatic dependencies installation will only for work for the
distro we are using in the chroot though, as you are suggesting. That won't
require any additional config maintenance (and related automate testing).

I'll try to get this in before merging.
