We should add

  unsetenv(LD_PRELOAD)
  unsetenv(LD_LIBRARY_PATH)

to commandtest.c, because although we want these env variables
in normal usage of the virCommandPtr APIs, they're not desirable
in this test case. Since commandtesthelper doesn't do anything
to the system beyond creating a logfile, I imagine it'd work
fine without gentoo's LD_PRELOAD
