'service' expects things to be installed in particular locations; your
use of --prefix=/usr/local/libvirt violated those assumptions.  While
you "fixed" things for /usr/bin/virsh, there's a lot more files you'd
have to link into place if you want to match the default layout of the
libvirt binary package that came with RHEL that you are trying to
upgrade.  If you use libvirt.git, you can use './autogen.sh --system' to
pre-populate all of the configure arguments to match the RHEL defaults
(and even if you don't build libvirt.git, but from a tarball, then
looking at what autogen.sh does can prove useful).

Also, if you self-build libvirt, you may want to be sure that you
include the same RHEL-specific patches as in the distro's package, so
that you don't inadvertently lose the benefits of RHEL's efforts in
providing a stable product.

You may want to consider opening a help ticket with Red Hat, and/or
upgrading to RHEL 6.2.

It's generally considered poor netiquette to send disclaimers to
publicly-archived lists, where they cannot be enforced.  You may want to
consider sending from an alternate email account.
