Re: dpkg and user install mode

I have no manpage for fakeroot on this system. In fact I just need a
way to compile, say for example the eterm package and use it just for
me (that is because the root dont want to take the time to do it or
dont want it wide system installed). So, if this depends on the Imlib
package, I'm fooled because I dont know how to tell eterm that I
installed Imlib only "locally".

I hope it's enough clear, I search a sort of --prefix option. Does
this fakeroot allow this ?
