[Libvir] netcat "-U" option

Debian ship a completely different version of netcat from Fedora.  Not 
just a different version, but it appears to be a different codebase.

Debian's netcat doesn't support the (very useful) -U option, so this 
code fails in src/remote_internal.c:

         cmd_argv[j++] = strdup (command);
         cmd_argv[j++] = strdup (server);
         cmd_argv[j++] = strdup (netcat ? netcat : "nc");
         cmd_argv[j++] = strdup ("-U");
         cmd_argv[j++] = strdup (sockname ? sockname : 
         cmd_argv[j++] = 0;

As a result of this remote-over-ssh fails on Debian.  I'm not completely 
sure how to solve this at the moment.  If anyone has any ideas ...
