You can do a client build by turning off the libvirtd daemon
with --without-libvirtd, and then also disabling any other
pieces you don't want using --without-XXXX - see the output
of 'configure --help' for info on all the options available.

Libvirt aims to write portable code for as many platforms as is practical.
Currently we officially aim to support Linux (all modern flavours),
FreeBSD, Windows via Mingw64 and OS-X because those are the ones where we
have contributors who do regular testing.

To the best of my knowledge we don't have any contributors who doing testing
on QNX, so we can't make any guarantees about any version of libvirt being
able to work on QNX. We need someone who has access to QNX to try libvirt
on QNX, report any compilation problems encountered and write + test fixes
for them. So if you're able to do this please report problems you find...
