Ubuntu 12.04 is a bit old to run recent versions of libguestfs.  Is it
possible to use 14.04 or ideally 15.04 instead?  I'm afraid with 12.04
you'll end up having a lot more problems than just the one below.

This bug was fixed by the following commit:

  commit 47d909808aa8cd285f46cab5ea08c7971f8f2f85

    v2v: -o libvirt: Replace List.mapi with mapi.
    Don't depend on OCaml >= 4.00.
    Thanks: Fabian Ohler

which was included in the 1.28 stable branch in >= 1.28.5.

However even if you use a later version of libguestfs, I'm afraid
you're still going to have a lot of problems with the old version of
