Hi gregor, does it work if log into your "default" schroot and install the "fakeroot" package?

I am not sure why it is not installed there already - I have it installed in my unstable-amd64-sbuild chroot.

It would be easy enough to have reprotest install it automatically, but I'm not sure that's the best solution since another tool is already supposed to take care of that.
