My system has a mirror configuration where only the host can access a special url from pacman.conf but chroots and containers fail.
Instead of host's pacman.conf use $pac_conf or pacman.conf from chroot. This still uses host's /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and should achieve the expected results.
Oh, this breaks if the chroot has repositories configured that the host does not have. *sigh*
