[libvirt] [PATCH] build: fix build on older gcc

On RHEL 6.2, gcc 4.4.6 complains:
cc1: warning: command line option "-Wenum-compare" is valid for C++/ObjC++ but not for C
which in turn breaks a -Werror build.

Meanwhile, in Fedora 17, gcc 4.7.0, -Wenum-compare has been enhanced
to also work on C, but at the same time, it is documented that -Wall
now implicitly includes -Wenum-compare.

Therefore, it is sufficient to remove explicit checks for this option,
avoiding the warning from older gcc while still getting the
compile-time safety from newer gcc.

* m4/virt-compile-warnings.m4 (-Wenum-compare): Omit explicit check.

Pushing under the build-breaker rule.
