[libvirt] [PATCHv3] build: fix shell detection bug

A missing shell was noisy, and the use of command to decipher a
shell's absolute path requires "" rather than ''.

* configure.ac (lv_cv_wrapper_shell): Fix logic errors if candidate
shell is not available.  Define a C string literal, not raw tokens.
Reported by Matthias Bolte.

Fixed in v3: the AC_DEFINE needs to output a string literal
rather than raw text.

Fixed in v2: don't call command -v on an empty substitution

Actually tested by myself this time rather than relying on others, by
manually overriding my /bin/sh with a broken dash, and double-checking
the resulting config.h.
