fakeroot can be built to either use SYSV IPC or TCP for message passing.

Cases for which the SYSV IPC version fails or causes problems but for
which fakeroot-tcp has been observed to work well include the items
listed below.

  * Multithreaded applications (using pthread)
  * Running under realtime-preempt kernel

Portability Notes

On OS X, only binaries that do NOT rely on Mach-based [e]uid/[e]gid/mode
APIs will correctly use fakeroot altered ownership/permissions.
See README_MACOSX.txt for further information.
