What platform was this on?  Some distros are set up to be tolerant of
lazy resolution, which masks issues like this (hence, I'm _not_ seeing
this error on Fedora).

No, it's not a bug in gcc, but an actual bug in libvirt.  If you can't
rely on lazy resolution (such as on platforms like mingw, except that
mingw doesn't build qemumonitortestutils in the first place), then
libraries MUST be listed in the order in which later libraries satisfy
symbols used by earlier libraries.

ACK, although I'd like to touch up your commit message (and in
particular mention the platform where this matters) before pushing.
