	I think this is the best solution: libfakeroot should be just
one library, statically linked.  This way we won't have troubles when
building for libc4, libc5, libc6, libc7... or even when building
something that is not linked with libc at all.

	I know current policy mandates that all shared libraries have
to be linked with libc, but this isn't exactly a general-purpose
shared library, and I think we could make an exception with this.
