Okay, I've cut the netcf-0.2.2 release, done builds for F18 and rawhide,
submitted the F18 update, and added a build-override to force use of

On the libvirt side, I tried a scratch build on f18 and found a problem
with CFLAGS that only occurs when building on a system that has
libnl3-devel only (no libnl-devel). I pushed a patch for that (because
it's a one line build breaker) and scratch builds with the updated
libvirt.spec now build properly with netcf-0.2.2 and libnl3-devel.

So everything should be okay to push the original patch in this thread.
As we've discussed, it will be much simpler to deal with if we can do
that before 0.10.0 is released, but I won't be around during the week to
make sure it happens (unless someone ACKs in the next 5 hours or so :-)

So - if/when you ACK the patch, please also push it.
