is a utility that runs programs in an environment that looks as if they were
run with super-user privileges. It is used primarily for setting file
ownerships and modes before packaging them. You can for example create
device nodes and store them in a tarball while logged in as a normal user.
Of course, the programs run from a fakeroot session cannot really do
privileged system calls; fakeroot keeps an in-memory database of file
ownerships and such things.
