Well, my point was you can use the Debian package system in each chroot,
and get different versions of the package installed.

I agree it would be nice to be able to do that in a single root, but I
suspect it is not possible in general, because there could be
conflicting requirements; you'd end up with full copies of /* for each
version anyway.

This is certainly what I do, usually without the 'make install'.
