How is CGI going to run chroot?

CGI will be seriously crippled without /bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin
in PATH and /lib:/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib in LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Are you planning to replicate those in the jail?

Once you've done that, you still need to hack mod_cgi to translate
those CGI environment variables that involve system paths.

IOW, I think you're looking at a distinctly non-trivial project.
