You might need an entry in ./etc/shells, which fakeroot can sort out for
you enough to create a tarball from ./etc that says the right "root"
permissions, but you will never need an entry in build host /etc/shells
as part of this.
If you didn't try fakeroot before give it a go, it's pretty cool.
uclinux can cook rootfs images using it as normal user safely.
