It would go around the point of chroot if you trivially could :)

There are couple of mounts from the real system there though, most
notably /tmp, /dev and /proc, but usually it's just simpler to copy
into the scratchbox home dir what you need instead of hacking the
other way round (Scratchbox is a maze of symbolic links, you get lost
very quickly when trying to do funny stuff ;).
