it's only critically important for the creation of the GDS-II files

but, also, i have found that in some instances software won't even compile on debian/testing, and conversely some won't compile on debian/stable.

the other reason is, some people use ubuntu and doing so results in the wrong versions of libraries. a chroot is "stable common ground" that allows continuing to work.

thus it is down to need and circumstances.
