The patches are fine, they simply need to be "rebased" on top of the
stable branch.  If you're set on downloading and compiling from the
source, you may as well just use libguestfs from git which includes
this program already.

As I suggested before, get someone local to you who can help you with
tasks like patching and compiling.
