You might find some example code useful.  Look at the definition of
CHECK_ERROR macro, used here:

  http://hg.et.redhat.com/applications/virt/applications/virt-top--devel?f=8c1b14506d91;file=libvirt/libvirt_c.c
(eg line 63)

and defined here:

  http://hg.et.redhat.com/applications/virt/applications/virt-top--devel?f=a5bc5f747f2c;file=libvirt/libvirt_c_prologue.c
(line 45)

and the _raise_virterror function which gets the virterror defined
here:

  http://hg.et.redhat.com/applications/virt/applications/virt-top--devel?f=6fe1e50a49db;file=libvirt/libvirt_c_epilogue.c
(line 66)

  errp = conn ? virConnGetLastError (conn) : virGetLastError ();

Note that actually copying the virterror may not be such a good idea.
The lifetime of that structure and the strings / pointers contained
within it is a little bit undefined, and the virCopy* functions don't
do a deep copy IIRC.  So you should take copies of anything you need
yourself, and make sure you don't refer to the conn/dom/net structure
fields if you can possibly avoid it.

Rich.
