Fakeroot makes it possible to run commands in an environment faking
root privileges. This is done by setting LD_PRELOAD to libfakeroot.so,
which provides wrappers around getuid, chown, chmod, mknod, stat, and
so on, thereby creating a fake root environment.
po4a is optional, auto-detected dependency, needed for building non-English
man pages. You can skip building them by passing MANPO=no to the build script.
Passing MANPO=yes will make the script fail if po4a is not installed.
