whenever an app uses a chroot setup, a working environment needs to be
setup beforehand, that includes shared libs and any other needed files
in /dev, /etc, /bin, and maybe /var and /tmp.  The exact layout varies
depending on the app and how it's configured.

The strace should of shown no connect attempt to the YP servers, but the
lack of /etc/nsswitch.conf and /etc/resolv.conf will probably be the
problem in that case.
