fakeroot package is no longer used by the package manager. Instead
each package is built and archived with the ownership of whatever user
ran the package manager.
On installation of a package the files are then installed with the
ownership set to
root:root achieving the same behavior in the end as
fakeroot is a nasty hack and adds quite a lot of overhead to builds. I
am now able to rebuild GCC in only 10 minutes!
