Ok, I wrote a really simple vfork() wrapper library you can preload (like
libfakeroot), and was able to get it working perfectly. Note then vfork()
manpage says fork() can be used to implement vfork(), so this is perfectly
acceptable behavior. Now I can actually get libfoo-dev package build
dependencies and such (aswell as sgml and tetex related things). So it
works pretty well.

Would you like me to send you the source I have?
