ACK to this change, but I'm worried that it might be imcomplete.  You
are effectively reverting commit cbc702594, but that commit mentioned
that libvirtd built with avahi support but avahi not installed refuses
to boot.  Did you actually test that scenario?  I'd feel more
comfortable knowing for sure in the commit message that you tested that
libvirt can start up without error no matter what state avahi is in
(including not installed).
