autogen.sh creates a generic configure script. The args to configure
only apply to that particular source dir's build - they don't get
propagated through to the RPM spec

This is the sequence:

  make dist
  rpmbuild libvirt-*tar.gz
    -> configure
    -> make 
    -> make install

The args to the first call to 'configure', have no impact on the
2nd configure run which is done by rpmbuild
