Since device-mapper is Linux specific, then by definition
virIsDevMapperDevice() will always return false on those
platforms. So there is no requirement for any device-mapper
libs on non-Linux, you just trivially make it do:

virIsDevMapperDevice(const char *devname)
    struct stat buf;

    if (!stat(devname, &buf) &&
        S_ISBLK(buf.st_mode) &&
            return true;

    return false;
virIsDevMapperDevice(const char *devname ATTRIBUTE_UNUSED)
  return false;
