I'm pretty sure you'll need the libvirt-devel package installed to compile this.

I guess my question is: why are you doing all of this by hand?  There are
packages in Fedora for *most* of the software we need in ovirt, and for those
pieces that we either need updated packages or packages not in Fedora, we have
an ovirt repository on http://ovirt.org with those packages.

Even better, we have pre-generated appliances and ways to create your own
appliances that already have ovirt embedded on them.  As a starting place, I
would strongly recommend going down this road.  Once you've seen what it can do
and how it works, then you can start compiling your own stuff from source.
