Ah, I see now - the file in question is src/libvirt.c - the typo of
libirt.c threw me off.

Other than the broken #include, it looks like the rest of the file
protects all use of *gcr* and *GCR* under the WITH_GNUTLS conditional;

I think we are guaranteed that gcrypt.h exists if gnutls is properly
installed, even if it is a transitive dependency.  Does this patch fix
it for you?
