Theres a (another) gap in the rule here.
if you read it litterally the answer is 'No he does not get an auto 6 roll, unless a black orc on chariot counts as being on his own.'
So the real question is, does a mounted black orc count as being on his own?
On the other hand, GW usually tries to be clear in this sort of stuff and if a chariot would fall outside the waaaagh rule, there would have been an explanation He is mounted and the chariot has crew, yatta yatta yatta, but if he wouldn't follow the auto 6 rule, then there would have been an explanation why, or an alternative rule. There isn't.
even though chariots dont roll animosity, in this case its his mount, and i would find it hard to believe that this is the only black orc that dont gain waaaagh!, without a good explanation in the rules.

I'd say yes, in the same way as a character on a wyvern gets an auto 6, the chariot is a 'kind' of monstrous mount in the fact that its a multi-wound mount. Plus its all a single model; to me for a character to be part of a unit, it has to have the option of not being part of the 'unit', and you can't take the character off the chariot. Kind of.
I would say yes, its a single, black orc model.
But only on the one base. Can the 2 split from each other? No. Therefore it's all part of the black orc and his wargear.
You can't really class the chariot/wyvern in this case as a unit, it doesn't take up any special slots, and if it's not a unit the warboss can't be part of it, and therefore alone.
Plus, I think I'm right in saying, a monstrous mount is treated exactly like a normal mount apart from scoring VP separately, no bonus to armour etc. so by extension does a black orc on his own on a boar get to waaagh!, He can't be part of a unit already, because he can still join a unit while on his boar.
Practically though, if you're opponent disagrees just roll for it when it comes up.
Hmmm...re-reading the rule, it's actually the second part that's interesting 'BO characters in units are bound by their unit's test'...dang, it could go either way really...
But I still think you can't count a character on a Chariot or Wyvern as 'on his own'. Figure it out with your opponent, but thankfully, my list won't have this problem!
