Package to allow commands to be run as the superuser

Sudo determines who is an authorised user by consulting a /usr/local/etc/sudoers configuration file, which needs to be initially set up by the system administrator. The program prompts for a user's password to initiate a validation period of N minutes, here N is defined at installation time. Note that there is no easy way to prevent a user from gaining a root shell if they have access to commands that are shell scripts or that allow shell escapes.

There are run-time dependencies that need to be installed first. Why not use depothelper to install them all in one go?

Run-time dependencies:
gettext libiconv libunistring zlib          
Build-time dependencies:
gettext libiconv libunistring make zlib
