This package is intended to enable something like: fakeroot rpm
--rebuild i.e. to remove the need to become root for a package
build. This is done by setting LD_PRELOAD to a "libfakeroot.so.0.0",
that provides wrappers around chown, chmod, mknod, stat, etc.
If you don't understand any of this, you do not need this!
