So why are you bootstrapping and using unprivileged build, when

1) You're running NetBSD, hence no need to bootstrap.
2) You have root access (otherwise you wouldn't be able to use chroot).

Normally application run-time environment isolation requires features
like zones/containers, which NetBSD doesn't support. So stick to one
run-time environment, or manually setup multiple chroot environments.

There is no universal way to setup chroot, everybody does it in
different ways, depending on their needs. I have a set of scripts that
use mount_null to provide read-only mount points for pkgsrc builds.
Other people use something else...
