Attached is an autoconf snippet which allows you to check that the libvirt library is installed (not necessarily development headers though) and check the version number.

If any autoconf experts (hello, Mark) would like to check it makes sense, that'd be great.
I should add that I use it like this:

  dnl Check for libvirt, sets LIBVIRT_VERSION.

  dnl Libvirt must be >= 0.2.1
  AC_MSG_CHECKING([libvirt >= 0.2.1])
  if test $LIBVIRT_VERSION -ge 2001; then
     AC_MSG_ERROR([please upgrade your libvirt library])

I don't see that this buys us much over just doing

  PKG_CHECK_MODULES(LIBVIRT, libvirt >= 0.2.1)

which already works...

Hmmm. pkg-config doesn't work with packages installed in non-standard places. (In fact for me the use of PKG_CHECK_MODULES in configure.in prevents me from installing on Debian at all, but that's possibly another story).

However the real reason I went down this route was to check for the libvirt-python bindings ... See the bottom of the attached file.
