fakeroot is better, as it is really a fake root environment. Just wraps
system calls so processes think they are uid=0, but they have no privs
outside the normal users.

This saves you from things like possible bugs that may run "rm -rf /" or
similar :)

Really, you want fakeroot instead of sudo or compiling as real root.
