That should work fine.  You need to make sure it's the compiler inside
the chroot that actually runs, for which there are at least two

1- run distccd inside the chroot
2- if you need/want to run it outside, make sure that its path finds a
shell script that runs 'exec schroot -c natty_32 gcc "$@"' (adjust to
fit) to enter the chroot
