/dev/stdout is present in the chroot.  However, in my setup, stdout is
a pipe to a "tee" process, and the pipe is owned by root so the build
user can't access it through /dev/stdout.  I'd imagine much the same
must be true in the reproducible-builds environment.  (Of course, then
I have no clue how it's working at all on the buildd's.)
