I think I've fixed this with the latest set of commits:

(1) The option is now called --packager-config, and it is common to
all backends.  ie. Both yum and pacman use the same option, which
means you can immediately use this from libguestfs.


(2) The code now checks that the config file exists, and makes the
path absolute (so that relative paths will work).
