This is due to a misfeature on how ldd works on libraries. Basically,
if the name doesn't contain a '/', will look for the library in the
standard locations. In the case above, ldd is saying that the
libfakeroot.so.0.0 in /usr/lib is statically linked. To get ldd to
check the newly built library, use 'ldd ./libfakeroot.so.0.0'.
