That sounds like the tail of the gnulib section of tests, but you
snipped too much output.  We need to know WHICH test is failing, and
whether it is a known upstream gnulib bug; if it is fixed quickly in
gnulib, we can pull in a newer gnulib before the rc2 release of libvirt.

Oh, you did narrow in on the test.  I haven't seen any recent bug-gnulib
traffic that mentions this test failing on OSX, nor do I have easy
access to a machine to verify and clean it up myself.  Can you help
debug the issue?  One thing to look at is whether gnulib is declaring
the system getgroups() as working or not - what does 'grep GETGROUPS
config.status' report for you?  Also, it could just be an overly-strict
