Compiling from source is great, but you probably shouldn't
try to 'make install', since that will overwrite parts of
the already-installed RPM (or else it will install in /usr/local
meaning that you've got a confusing mix of two systems installed).

Much better to just use ./run and run everything from the local
copy, so:

  ./run ./sysprep/virt-sysprep --firstboot foo.sh -a disk.img

(with sudo if it needs to run as root to access the disk).

The ./run script sets up environment variables so it always ignores
any installed version.
