With this patch, I'm getting a compile failure on FreeBSD 8.2:

util/virnetdev.c:667: error: 'struct ifreq' has no member named

Looking further, I see <net/if.h> has:

struct ifreq {
 union {
  short ifru_index;
 } ifr_ifru;
#define ifr_index ifr_ifru.ifru_index

so it should have picked the ifreq.ifr_index path; next looking at
config.log, I see:

configure:67334: checking for struct ifreq.ifr_index
configure:67334: gcc -std=gnu99 -c -g  -D_THREAD_SAFE -D_THREAD_SAFE
conftest.c >&5
In file included from conftest.c:540:
/usr/include/net/if.h:305: error: field 'ifru_addr' has incomplete type

aha - BSD's <net/if.h> is not self-contained.

I'm now testing a minor tweak to configure.ac to include further pre-req
headers; I'll post the modified version of your patch that finally gets
things working for me.
