No, not really.  A GUI tool can work on a chrooted or non-chrooted
system if there are symlinks to the chrooted files.

e.g. /etc/named.conf is a symlink to /var/named/chroot/var/etc/named.conf
And a tool that edits /etc/named.conf doesn't know, nor care, whether
it's operating directly on that file, or the chrooted one.

But without the symlinks, you need two tools:  One for the chrooted, or
another for the non-chrooted files.  Or one that magically works on the
right file.
