remove fakeroot

Portage is not designed to run wrapped in fakeroot. Instead
one should set FEATURES="fakeroot". Wrapping emerge with
fakeroot triggers emerge to disable fakeroot.
See bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=489016

This patch has been on the embedded list for a long time.

fakeroot is probably useless now anyways with user namespace in the kernel

Can user name spaces also allown chown(2) like fakeroot do?

If so this would be very good to have native in portage :)

it will make it look like the current uid is 0, so the code is running as root

Yes, but that does not allow you to do chown from the small tests I have done.
