This is supposed to work, though you don't have to be root to do this. I
therefore guess it is some kind of system setup - you don't use any caging
software like SELinux, or? I know those have lead to problems in the past...

Otherwise, I'd suggest three things:
1. Run the thing with ltrace, to make sure it doesn't pick up any leftovers
from previous installs.
2. Run the thing with strace, to see what systemcalls it does. This will
produce lots of output, but might help finding out what exactly failed.
3. Use a different machine or different OS, at least you could verify parts
there, to narrow the number of possible failures.
