Re: make-kpkg kernel-image without fakeroot ?!

I just inadvertently built a kernel without fakeroot, specifically I

I don't see any error messages, and the deb was built.
My kernel-pkg.conf includes the line
root_cmd := fakeroot
though I don't find "fakeroot" anywhere in the build log.
I also said export PATCH_THE_KERNEL=YES before the build.
I thought this was supposed to fail. Has something changed?
You've probably just built a .deb package. Using dpkg to install
it would probably need root.
