You compile the libc and also install it to the same place.
I don't think that it is libtool job to find dependencies and place them within.
I use a simple script that examine dependencies within the chroot and
copy libraries from cross compile environment into the chroot

So I don't think this is the feature that is missing. The major issue
is to make sure that files installed by libtool into the chroot will
be valid after chroot given all dependencies are available.

Oh... OK. As long as we understand this use case, I am happy.
