'chroot_safe' is a alternative method for chrooting dynamically linked applications. It delays the chrooting until after dynamic linking has completed, so you don't need to have a copy of the binary or libraries within the chroot. This simplifies the process of chrooting an application, as you often do not need any files besides the data files within the chroot. In addition to chrooting the application, 'chroot_safe' also drops root privileges before letting the application start.
