Should I always use -rfakeroot when building packages?

Doesn't dpkg-buildpackage install them by itself? I guess I should check them
to see if they actually work in some way... :) If a 'make tests' is present,
would it be enough checking? :) Once I'm sure they work, where should I upload
the two files? Should I register somewhere to gain access?

Let suppose I have a source made for i386 arch, and I need to modify it to
make it work under m68k... My guess is that dpkg-buildpackage will also build
also a *.diff* file somewhere to show the differences between my version and
the other: doesn't it? In such a case, should I modify the ChangeLog or similar?
And, btw, are there some rules to follow in #ifdef's and things like that? Do
have to upload the .diff file somewhere? What should I do if dpkg-buildpackage
insists in including the source inside the package?

Got the 2.0.7pre1.deb files today on my debian mirror.
Thanks a lot for all the infos... I hope to be of some help in the future,
instead of asking silly questions all of the time! :)))

BTW, I have already offered to build the Amiga installation disks, but with
answer... I'll need all of the infos on how to build them and what to include...
Anyone on this?

Ciao, Giacomo.
