Have a look at makejail here: http://www.floc.net/makejail/

It's a helper script to setup a chroot, it copies the files it can guess automatically.

Recursively, it adds these files:

- any list you provide
- a library used by an added dynamic executable (uses ldd)
- a file accessed by test commands (using strace -e open)

There is a sample apache configuration file, add a test command from
outside the chroot to access a url using modpython.

If you have a running apache in chroot, test it on an empty directory so
it doesn't overwrite the existing files and look at what's copied.
