If you're using debian or a debian-derived operating system (e.g.
ubuntu), you have a choice of faketime or datefudge; both of these
packages can fake the system clock for any dynamically-linked executable.

for example:

0 dkg at pip:~$ date
Sun Jun  5 18:13:19 EDT 2011
0 dkg at pip:~$ faketime 2010-03-05 date
Fri Mar  5 00:00:00 EST 2010
0 dkg at pip:~$
