[libvirt] libvirt-guests and ./configure --without-libvirtd

On mingw, libvirt is typically configured --without-libvirtd, because the mingw build is designed to target other hosts, but cannot natively run as a hypervisor. Additionally, mingw doesn't really have a notion of /etc/sysconf, so installing /etc/sysconfig/libvirt-guests doesn't work too well.

Should tools/Makefile.am make the build and installation of libvirt-guests dependent on the already-existing WITH_LIBVIRTD Makefile conditional, or would it ever make sense to build libvirt-guests but not libvirtd? I guess the answer to that boils down to whether it ever makes sense to use libvirt-guests on a system that is not running libvirtd, in which case it would only be able to control remote URIs. But the whole point of the script is to cleanly save state for local VMs, so I don't see using libvirt-guests as a management tool for remote URIs.

Unless anyone speaks up with another opinion, I'll prepare a patch that makes libvirt-guests depend on WITH_LIBVIRTD.
