Summary: Run a command in an environment faking root privileges for file manipulation

fakeroot runs a command in an environment were it appears to have root
privileges for file manipulation. This is useful for allowing users to
createarchives (tar, ar, .rpm etc.) with files in them with root
permissions/ownership. Without fakeroot one would have to have root
privileges to create the constituent files of the archives with the
correct permissions and ownership, and then pack them up, or one would
have to construct the archives directly, without using the archiver.
