Looks like this has been broken since Jim's gnulib commit in December:

commit 767ccd40dadbeb4b1480a235ec4bacbcd50276cd

    bootstrap: remove some now-unneeded code

    This script arose back when gnulib-tool was young.
    Since then, it has seen improvements that render much of this
    script unnecessary.  In particular, it can now make symlinks
    to the files it uses.  Also, I no longer see as much value in
    marking files as read-only via comments.
    If you relied on the symlink-creation feature of the preceding
    version of this script, you can get most of that functionality
    by adding the --symlink option to the definition of
    gnulib_tool_option_extras in your bootstrap.conf file.

Jim obviously didn't test with the ancient libtool of RHEL5.  I'll see
if I can find time to fix this in gnulib, then update libvirt to the
latest gnulib.
