Hmm maybe you have to install debian/emdebian apt keyring to get rid of this. 
I am on debian, that's maybe why it works for me...

Ahh interesting, i am getting this error too, but it never occured to me that 
this is because of qtmoko chroot. It can be related to binded mounts...

You can try append -verbose to see more details.

Otherwise you might need the devel packages like libasound2-dev libssl-dev but 
i wonder why they are not installed - i have checked the qtmoko-chroot- and they are there.
