[cc'ing the list again so the answer gets archived]

Libvirt's no different from any other library, you need to link
against libvirt, and you need to have the libvirt headers installed.
On Fedora, that's:

yum install libvirt-devel

If you want to build hellolibvirt without using make, you'll need to
edit hellolibvirt.c and take out config.h, which is unused.  Then you
can do:

gcc -o hellolibvirt -lvirt hellolibvirt.c

Then you just need to learn the API and decide what you want to do
with it. ;-)

The API is documented at:

http://libvirt.org/html/libvirt-libvirt.html
