Download Source Package fakeroot:
tool for simulating superuser privileges - shared libraries
fakeroot provides a fake "root environment" by means of LD_PRELOAD and SysV IPC (or TCP) trickery. It puts wrappers around getuid(), chown(), stat(), and other file-manipulation functions, so that unprivileged users can (for instance) populate .deb archives with root-owned files; various build tools use fakeroot for this by default.
This package contains the LD_PRELOAD libraries.
