You should give /usr/lib64 as the path.

As for why it doesn't work, though, I'm really very confused.
Obviously I don't get the error you're seeing, and I don't understand
how something as simple as '-lvirt' can fail if you have libvirt

Have you tried using our binaries?  Might be easier than trying to
build it:


Also, the new version I'm preparing is much less alpha than the one
you are trying to build.  If you can wait until after this weekend,
you may find a much better / more practical version for your needs.
