libvirt expects the QEMU binaries in /usr/bin. e.g. it explicitly
checks for /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64. Try symlinking
/usr/local/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 to /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64.

I'm not sure why the paths are hardcoded instead of using the PATH to
find the QEMU binaries, like the storage driver does it already:

  virFindFileInPath("qemu-img")

Maybe Daniel can explain.
