You can set the ROOTCMD make variable in boot-floppies to do this,
e.g. 'make ROOTCMD=sudo'.  It doesn't work for all the targets yet
(all of the ones I've encountered on Alpha that require root now use

Of course you need sudo for this because the boot floppies actually
require you to be root (you have to mount loopback filesystems and so
forth), rather than just fakeroot.
