Yes, for core packages, there are additional issues, but I think they'd
be easy enough to address (we just need to choose where to keep that
extra Makefile).

Note that we don't need to run Emacs: we need to run makeinfo (and
potentially many other tools).  I tried to make an LXC container that
simply re-uses the host's filesystem (so it ends up barely more costly
than a chroot while providing a complete Debian system) and managed to
get it running on my own machine, but not on elpa.gnu.org.
