Your problem is nothing to do with libguestfs, but anyway.

libguestfs depends on a working qemu, which is broken in Ubuntu 12.04.
See this thread:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/libguestfs/2012-April/thread.html#00028

and this bug comment:

We don't have anyone maintaining libguestfs in Ubuntu, so what you are
getting is just random packages pulled out of Debian.  Not
surprisingly that often doesn't work.  I do my best to help out, but
it's not my primary development platform, and I don't have permissions
to commit the required fixes to qemu/seabios in Ubuntu.
