Bug#175897: dpkg-dev: dpkg-source(1) man page tweaks

Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.10.8
Severity: wishlist

The dpkg-source(1) man page should mention 'fakeroot' as a useful value
for the '-r' option of 'dpkg-buildpackage'.  There is also a minor
formatting bug in the '-I' option description for that program.

Here is a patch to fix both:
