I don't usually enable warnings with clang, but I've pushed this which
fixes the problem above (and a further one) for me:

This is actually because:

  checking for nbdkit... no

but we go ahead and run the golang tests anyway.  Fixed here:


but there may be more problems after this, we'll see.

This has golang 1.10 which predates the inclusion of modules.  There's
basically no sane way to make libnbd work with both old and new
golang, so I would suggest --disable-golang on this platform.  (In
fact is it possible to disable features on different CI platforms?)

I think "make distcheck" is a nice-to-have but ISTR that making it
work was a lot of work for libguestfs.

Sure, go for it.
