[Libvir] BuildRequires check

I tried to configure libvirt from cvs on a just-built rawhide system
and it failed like this, since I hadn't installed the "check" package,
which defines PKG_CHECK_EXISTS:

  checking for init script flavor... redhat
  checking for iptables... /sbin/iptables
  ./configure: line 12187: syntax error near unexpected token `libxml-2.0,LIBXML_FOUND=yes'
  ./configure: line 12187: `    PKG_CHECK_EXISTS(libxml-2.0,LIBXML_FOUND=yes)'

Here's a fix:

	* libvirt.spec.in (BuildRequires): Add "check".
