When I came up with a simple implementation awhile back, the fakeroot
maintainer said that it was possible for it to track all programs that
were executed and files that were accessed. Perhaps we need an ENV added
to fakroot for it to enable some sort of logging of this info, then it
could be parsed and matched to packages (-dev for headers accessed,
programs, etc..) for a "reference" list?
