In debian/rules you shouldn't need this any longer (with latest CVS):

export CFLAGS += -fno-stack-protector

Shouldn't virt-manager Depends: on python-libvirt and virtinst?

It should probably Build-Depends: on (eg) cdbs too, since firstly you're 
using cdbs in debian/rules, and secondly virt-manager isn't pure Python 
- it contains a C-based widget.

Not clear what the postrm was for.  Is there configuration kept in
