If it's only warning then it's 'ok'. :)

It's more complicated than that, but yeah - it has been compiled at
different machine; dnsmasq used to be present and so on.
Pkg prerequisites do not exist everywhere. Anyway, yes libvirt has been
compiled with dnsmasq present.
If it's not already, I would mention dnsmasq (and all other) optional
dependency in some README. That would be great :)

Thank you all,
