I did build with fakeroot a few years long, and had some minor issues, 
maybe this thread(and links in that thread) is a little bit helpful.
Currently i build my personal packages as unprivileged user, with a 
patched makepkg.
This does not work without also patching buildscripts from SBo, as there 
is almost always a "chown root ..."
