It uses the CLEANUP_* macros, and they appear to pull in the hash_free
function (via guestfs_int_cleanup_hash_free).

What does confuse me is why linking with libutils.a causes the
hash_free dependency to be pulled in, since if my understanding of
static linking is correct it should only pull in whole object files
which are actually used.  This I cannot explain.

Nevertheless the error message (see above) is repeatable and
undeniable evidence that something is wrong.
