[Libvir] Configuration and building libvirt.



We want to configure and build libvirt library (0.1.4 for instance) from tar.gz file on a IA32 platform with RHEL4U2 distro without installing and build all Xen modules.
The steps are the following:
   tar -xzvf libvirt-0.1.4.tar.gz
   cd libvirt-0.1.4
   ./configure --prefix=/usr
   make
   make install

Unfortunatly, the "./configure --prefix=/usr " aborts with:
   checking for library containing xs_read... no
   configure: error: Xen store library not found
(see attached file)
corresponding to lines:
   dnl search for the Xen store library
AC_SEARCH_LIBS(xs_read, [xenstore], [], [AC_MSG_ERROR([Xen store library not found])])
in the configure file.
We have then transfered the libxenstore.so file into /usr/lib directory of our machine, but the result is the same. (NB: We had previously transferred all Xen public C header files into /usr/include/xen directory)

1- Could you tell us what are the Xen files strictly necessary to achieve this operation? 2- Is this operation also possible with a IA64 building environment on our IA32 platform?

Regards.
