So say I wanted to check if an existing system of mine has been 
compromised.  I already know that chkrootkit is returning nothing, but 
that's returning nothing with no source to compare to, so obviously 
there's the potential there for error.

Should I compile world in /usr/src and use chkrootkit with a basedir of 
the compiled binaries?  Or should I use mtree, and if so, suggestions on 
best ways?
