Ah, yes, this is true.

Yeah. If you have the same developers contributing to all the subprojects,
then you might as well run all the buildslaves in the same chroot, but you
still have N*M slaves. It wouldn't take too much effort to make it possible
for one buildslave to connect to multiple buildmasters, which would reduce
this down to one slave and one chroot per build platform, But you'd still be
stuck with N slaveports on the buildmaster side, and if it is expensive to
maintain this (allocating unique port numbers, keeping firewall entries
matched up, etc), then that becomes a hassle.
