Need help with making a package management system (doing Linux From Scratch)


Firstly, if someone doesn't know what it is, Linux From Scratch is a book made to guide beginners with building a Linux system completely from sources, no distro involved.

Now, this is my problem. I've gotten to chapter 6, where the building of the real system begins, and it tells you to adopt a package management system. The best one seems to be the "fakeroot" approach, described here. But I've stumped on the details on how to use it. The text does a general description, but it doesn't point out the specific methods and steps to implement it.

So does anybody know some step-by-step tutorial for just one installation, to help me understand the procedures and advantages/disavdantages of this approach? I know that I'm supposed to do my own research, but Google hasn't been helpful so far and I don't have a clue on how to do this.
