Just the other week sshd 4.9 enabled chroot for the first time I think.  
Fairly new stuff.  You'll have to roll your own rpm for CentOS as it 
will be unlikely that they roll it - probably not even for 5.2 either.

* Added chroot(2) support for sshd(8), controlled by a new option
   "ChrootDirectory". Please refer to sshd_config(5) for details, and
   please use this feature carefully. (bz#177 bz#1352)

pam_chroot might get deprecated.
