Building BuildAPI Docker app

I am working through building up the BuildAPI Docker app that is going to live and work in Vagrant with the other apps. Currently I have things to the stage where buildapi is fully installed, and running but am having problems with kombu.

I have run into these issues before, when I was configuring kombu for the first time on my local machine. When I run docker build -t buildapi-app . and then docker run -i -p 5000:5000 -t buildapi-app the app starts up fine, but I see the following message about kombu:

localhost:buildapi-app jzeller$ docker run -i -p 5000:5000 -t buildapi-app
Starting subprocess with file monitor
