Bug#610749: fakeroot fails ownership with kfreebsd systems

Package: fakeroot
Version: 1.14.5-1
Severity: important
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org

I have observed a very strange failure when using fakeroot
with dpkg-buildpackage under kfreebsd-amd64.

The issue at stake is that links are not assigned the ownership
of the superuser. Sometimes even group setting fails, but that is
irregular enough that I have problems reproducing also the
group-failure in a small package.

I include in this bug report a minimal package "wrong-issue",
which consistently fails in setting ownership "root" on the
symlink "still-wrong-issue" when built on kfreebsd-amd64.
The command was

    dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -B

In contrast, with no surprise, the build succeeds with

    dpkg-buildpackage -rsudo -B

and there is no problem with fakeroot in GNU/Linux.
I have no good explanation at this moment, but I have
rebooted the kfreebsd-system and still the same failure

Best regards,
Mats Erik Andersson, DM
