fakesystemd package breaking builds

Seems the fakesystemd package is breaking some rawhide builds, particularly 
because it is getting pulled into the buildroot and that it contains:
Conflicts: systemd

Example qt:

(which is no direct systemd dependencies, mind you)

I can guess why this fakesystemd package came into existence, but I question 
the wisdom behind it's implementation.  As far as I can tell, it contains 
Provides: systemd
(and a few other systemd-related dependencies)

systemd-related directories
systemd macros

I'd argue 
* these last 2 items could easily be shared with the real systemd package 
(ie, systemd could grow systemd-filesystem and/or systemd-macros subpkgs) 
and should not be duplicated here.
* fakesystemd should be untagged until the reasons behind these failures are 
better understood and fixed
