That's a bug in portablexdr.  No public header should _EVER_ include a
private header, especially not "config.h".

Meanwhile, should libvirt work around the problem by checking instead
for rpc/types.h and rpc/xdr.h, or does rpc/rpc.h provide something extra
on other platforms where we cannot solve things by just going for the
constituent headers?  Or just wait for the fixed portablexdr to
percolate to anyone interested in building libvirt?

I'm assuming you meant the portablexdr github repo?
