New version of the fakeroot patch

A suggestion: USE_FAKE is not descriptive.  It doesn't tell what is fake 
or what happens.  I'm not sure fake is the even the right word.

USE_FAKEROOT is better, but still ambiguous: it's not really fake, and 
"root" can mean too many things.

I guess what I'm trying to say is consider a name that describes what is 
accomplished, not how it works.
