I think it's a bug.  libfakechroot presents a version of dlopen() on
the assumption that the libc it's fronting has dlopen().  So, anyone
probing for dlopen() finds it in libfakechroot.  However, when that
dlopen() is called you get a (very confusing) link error.  This is a
bug because if the underlying C library does not have dlopen() then
libfakechroot should either not export it or should forward calls to
the right library (which was, I think.)
