I tested it and it works with ESX and QEMU over TLS. Here are some comments:

1) I wonder why you never pushed this patch:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2010-November/msg00761.html

2) libcurl license is missing in the installer.

3) There is no readme.txt about where to put TLS certs to make qemu+tls:// work.

4) The installer remembers the install location. Therefore, it suggest
to install in the same location as the previous installer for libvirt
0.8.5. But it doesn't check if a previous version is already installed
and doesn't suggest to uninstall it first. This results in libvirt
0.8.6 being installed over 0.8.5. The installer overwrites existing
files without notice.
