Generally, this is not an issue.  Autoconf tests INTENTIONALLY try to
probe for broken systems, in order to work around brokenness, so a
segfaulting conftest during ./configure just says that things are
probing as expected.  About the only thing that could be done to avoid a
segfault during ./configure is fixing the underlying broken system that
the probe was detecting in the first place, but that's more likely to be
a glibc or kernel fix, not a libvirt fix.

Isn't it a bit strange that it is broken under v1.0.3-maint but not under v1.0.2-maint? The underlying system is the same.
