finally i've got enough time to implement using fakeroot when building in chroot. a simple example about why this is good for us: select a pkg and put the

touch /etc
command to the end of build(). in chroot, this will run without any warning, and your chroot will be messed up. with the current fakeroot method:
touch: cannot touch `/etc/foo': Permission denied
==> ERROR: Build Failed.  Aborting...

yes, that's what we wanted! :)
