It should be mostly guaranteed since this file is created as part of
boot process, or installation process, as long as invoke-rc.d is
handled properly.

pbuilder does it properly, but no idea how buildds are maintained wrt
this. Since xvfb is one thing that other packages already use in
build, it's probably functional. Even if it fails, it's arguably
something that should be fixed to work on buildd side.
