Not an answer, but though I be a happy user of fakeroot I must remind
that in some cases it's unusable, see e.g. the other thread about po4a
that I maintain. Another example that comes to mind is blackbox:
The SlackBuild installs stuff directly in the host system to allow
building bbkeys just after blackbox. Better chroot to a build system or
do that in a VM ;)

Incidentally and as a reminder, calling makepkg with its full path in
the SlackBuild is necessary for "fakeroot sh maypackage.SlackBuild."
to succeed.

Have a good day,
