I decided that it made more sense to simply work with 0.8.6 (rather than
0.8.5).
But now I am getting another error, i.e "Failed to determine type of
version control used in /home/nagin/LIBVIRT/libvirt-0.8.6".  It prints it a
lot of times and then hangs.
make without syntax-check works fine.  Here are the error messages:
