It would appear so.  Interesting thing is that gcl/maxima works (using
the same mechanism) -- maybe only by luck.  I can disable this, but it
will decrease performance significantly.  Might be easier in the short
run to just build the package by hand and upload -- the 'build' target
doesn't need fakeroot, and this is where the tests run.

This is a bug in fakeroot, right?  Aren't there other fakeroot-like
package installation mechanisms that could be tried?

Take care,
