Aaand I have the results:

failed to create the fake capabilities: internal error: Child process
HOME=/bad-test-used-env-home /usr/local/sbin/dnsmasqmock.py --version)
unexpected exit status 127: /usr/bin/env: symbol lookup error:
undefined symbol: __asan_option_detect_stack_use_after_return

Why does dnsmasqmock.py try to link with libvirt.so.0 or why there's a
missing symbol is beyond me. So let me just stick with what I suggested
