Installwatch

Installwatch is a simple utility which keeps track of which files are created and modified during the installation of a new program. It's fast and easy to use. It doesn't require a "pre-install" phase because it monitors processes while they run. Installwatch works with every dynamically linked ELF program, by intercepting system calls that cause file system alterations.
