This is a minor update to 1.12.2 - the major change I've done is the
switch to --with-ipc=tcp communication way that should solve some
issues that have come up with recent kde builds. please test if you can
still build all your other stuff with it.

Attention: Please also take care off all packages that install files
with setuid bit set. Take a look at
http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/13444 !

I could not track down where the issue is and the upstream Debian
developer can't reproduce it while Tpowa and some other could. Only
x86_64 is affected and sometimes files with setuid set don't get that
permission when the pkg gets installed.


upstream changelog:

 fakeroot  (1.12.2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Replace and (hopefully) fix broken alpha stat version hack in
