Because on my system docker can only be run as root.

I'd love to see the errors. This works locally for me and on Travis - and
one of the key attractions in this design was that because it's all inside
the container it should behave the same for everyone. So I wonder what's
going wrong.

Salvador, why does this have to be a static MXE build instead of a shared one? That duplicates a LOT of things and would make the MXE container significantly bigger...

I had EXCELLENT success going to and open issues.
People there tend to be quite responsive. Sometimes the answer is "doesn't
work because BLA", but a couple of times already I got them to upgrade
things or change configurations...

Thanks for working on this!
