pbuilder, xvfb and nonexisting /tmp/.X11-unix


I'm seeking advice on the following problem:
- xvfb-run bails out on nonexistant / not root-owned /tmp/.X11-unix,
- a/my pbuilder chroot won't have /tmp/.X11-unix,
- I need some X (xvfb is fine) to build libaqbanking (glade-2 code
  generation needs X bug).

A working work-around is build-depending on fakeroot and calling
fakeroot xvfb-run.

Any better ideas?

Kind regards
