That's the guestfish temporary files, nothing to do with the appliance
cache.  Try removing /tmp/.guestfs-* and/or /var/tmp/.guestfs-* instead.

Note that in your original trace[1] the appliance had already been
cached, so w didn't get to see any errors from the build.  Therefore
if it is still failing after removing the cached appliance, post the
output of libguestfs-test-tool on the first run after doing that
'rm -r'.

This looks good to me, except that from your original trace[1] the
path would have been /usr/*local*/lib/....  Is it odd that this path
has changed?  Are you running matching versions of the library and the
appliance?  Do you have another version installed from some previous
