yes, my libvirt rpm and other related rpms all came from the RHEL 5.4 iso. And they all build for itanium 64
# rpm -qa | grep libvirt
libvirt-python-0.6.3-20.el5
libvirt-devel-0.6.3-20.el5
libvirt-0.6.3-20.el5

And i try to make a link, it still doesn't work.
ln -s /usr/local/bin/qemu-system-ia64 /usr/libexec/qemu-system-ia64

After make install, when i run virt-manager, the error is:

starting the virt-manager error: 'gtk.TreeView' object has no attribute 'set_level_indentation'
