That's not an actual Fedora release; I was asking more along the lines
of "Fedora 18" or "Fedora 19".  Your automake version matched Fedora 18;
but your kernel version was more like Fedora 19; you're definitely
running a mixed-mode system.  But thanks to some chatting on IRC, I
think I understand the problem well enough that I was still able to
write my patch on a stock F18 machine.

It looks like automake is failing because autogen.sh was not completely
run; and this in turn is due to bugs in the --no-git option.  I think I
fixed the --no-git bugs with this patch pending review:

Also, be sure that when you use --no-git that your copy of GNULIB_SRCDIR
matches the exact commit of gnulib.git that is recorded in libvirt.git.
 As of today's commits, it is the latest gnulib.git commit; but this is
not always the case, and there have been historical instances where
using the latest gnulib is not compatible with latest libvirt.git
without further tweaks to libvirt (which is why we only do .gnulib
submodule updates to libvirt when we are not in release freeze).
