Two things:
* Doesn't --root already use chroot(2)? Also, as far as I knew, rpm's
transaction stuff also uses chroot(2). Isn't chroot(2) on NetBSD
compatible with chroot(2) on Linux and other BSDs?

* How is it rpm(1) on NetBSD? As far as I knew, the man page for rpm
puts it in section 8, so it should be rpm(8).

In any case, thanks for the contribution!
