Continuing being OOT, I had a play with fakeroot, but in the end decided 
not to use it for building packages.

slackrepo (it is yours, isn't it?) in VM is my way to go.
And BTW, I noticed there are multiple packages that write outside of 
build directories, if I recall correctly, mostly Python related stuff.
Well, slackrepo noticed that ;-) Very nice feature.
