uh yeah you have to build boot-floppies as root, not fakeroot.  

furthermore i don't think build daemons are supposed to build
boot-floppies anyway they are special enough to where a real person
really needs to do it.  AFAIK a real person for each archetecture is
responible for building and uploading new versions of b-f, not any
build daemon.
