FS#3607 - fakeroot fails to build from source with glibc 2.33

Some distributions (Arch, Fedora) ship glibc 2.33

tools/fakeroot will not compile / may not compile because

error: ‘_STAT_VER’ undeclared

and multiple other errors - Distros might patch /revert the change to glibc or fakeroot has to be patched

related fedora bugs:

quote from ticket: “fakeroot needs to be enhanced to intercept all new glibc interfaces. The build failure merely obscures the larger issues.”

This error is critical since fakeroot is a requirement by the build system and not optional

Looks like the fix is already coming:

I was able to build Fakeroot 1.25.3-2 in Arch today.
I was also able to build a clean build from master, maybe the fix already sent upstream to openwrt fakeroot?
