Bug#932762: fakeroot file somefile: Bad system call

Package: file
Version: 1:5.37-3
Severity: serious
Control: affects -1 + src:unbound

file no longer works under fakeroot. For example:

$ fakeroot file /bin/true
Bad system call
$ echo $?

This is relevant when packages that still require root for building use
fakeroot and then call file. autoconf tends to use file and such use
breaks cross building unbound for mips64el as it detects LD="ld -m elf"
instead of LD="ld -m elf64smip". I suspect that this is also what breaks
building binutils and causes the autopkgtest regression.

Can we please disable seccomp until a solution for fakeroot is found?
