  Hum, I always rebuilt the libvirt RPM done for the release under my own
user id without setting up a specific buildroot.

  Hum this all build fine here with
paphio:~/libvirt -> rpm -q rpm rpm-build
rpm-4.4.2-47.el5
rpm-build-4.4.2-47.el5

and also on the Fedora 7 and 8 build systems, very strange.

  For building from CVS, there is a 'make rpm' command which works fine
at least in my environment.
