Hmm, good metaquestion.  And I bet that if I fix that issue, then this
patch would not be needed.

Well, the build in question was './configure --without-remote', which is
useful only for connecting to non-daemon hypervisors like ESX.  If you
are going to skip all rpc-related code, then you should skip both client
and daemon.

I'll look into that more today.
