I'll just say I haven't yet had time to play with 11.10 (hey, it only
came out a few days ago, ok!)

This isn't really surprising.  Because of the supermin appliance, the
binaries only work on the precise distro they are compiled for.  The
libguestfs-test-tool output seems to confirm this.

This is a proper bug though.  You should not need 'libvirt-dev' to
compile libguestfs.  You can try installing 'libvirt-dev' as a
workaround, but really we should fix this.

... and possibly 'libhivex-dev' and 'libpcre-dev' too.
