  1. This is nothing to be concerned about; it only happens because commands are run inside chroot. Research of this "issue" indicates it is purely cosmetic.
  2. KVM is installed as a dependency of the build dependency libguestfs-tools. KVM is not needed to build the actual images.
  3. This only means that VirtualBox cannot be started. VirtualBox kernel modules could not be compiled because the linux-headers-$(uname -r) package was not installed prior to installing VirtualBox (before starting Whonix's build script). The build script doesn't start VirtualBox, hence does not affect the build. The build script only uses VBoxManage for creation of virtual machine description files and that tool doesn't need VirtualBox kernel modules.
  4. This is caused by the same issue referenced above.
  5. This happens because debuild is run as user, not root. It is probably a bug in dpkg. Research of this issue reveals there are many similar bugs in dpkg.
