It wants access to proc to find the process to attach to.

If you run 2.4+ kernel, you can simply mount proc multiple times
(mkdir /proc; mount /proc under each chroot "fs").

Access to /proc is not insecure.  Why do you think it is?  If you
don't run it as root (which I'm sure you don't), you shouldn't have
anything to worry about.
