Weird; some packages have dh_testroot in the build target. I tried
removing that and using fakeroot only for install. It seems like it
works now, but we'll see... argh. It seems that some people
(including myself when I wrote these scripts) think that `fakeroot
dpkg-buildpackage` is the same as `dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot`).

Thanks; it's too early in the day for me to have thought of this
myself. :)
