I'm trying to test my package by running "ebuild /path/to/pkg.ebuild
install".  Naturally (for me) I do this as an unprivileged user, not as
root.  It fails because at least some steps such as dobin need to give
away ownership of the files being installed.  I tried to run the whole
thing including compilation under fakeroot but that doesn't help.

If it is relevant (but I don't think it is) my user _is_ in the portage

What is the accepted or usual way to do this task?
