Ah, good to know that when I am trying to do is currently not
possible.  I'll try again after the  weekend.

PS: I hope you have time to reply to my pull requests and suggested
redesign of the freedom-maker build structure (ie use a setup deb
instead of copying files into a chroot), as it is hard to know if it
is useful to continue in this direction or not.

PS2: I just provide build rules to create a .deb of the withsqlite
module, available from
<URL: https://github.com/jvasile/withsqlite/pull/1 >.  I hope it is
the correct place to push patches to.

Happy hacking
