Comment (by briankendall):

 I just spent several hours digging into this, and was finally able to get
 avahi to launch. The two issues that needed to be fixed were the
 aforementioned issue with `/run` for which I added a patch to configure,
 and that avahi will terminate if it's launched by launchd and drops root
 via setuid after launching. I submitted a PR here:
