symlinks can't go out of chroots. So /home+build/../trinity.source
inside the chroot is /../trinity.source and the parent of root being
root, resolves to /trinity.source which is /home+build/trinity.source.
In summary: the symlink points to itself.
The solution is to use mount --bind /trinity.source
