Actually scratch my other idea. I think that this is a problem with the 
code we generated on Linux not being portable. ie, GLibC's rpcgen program
generated a remote_protocol.c file which contains a glibc specific call
to xdr_quad_t which Mac OS X does not have. We need to re-generate the 
code on Mac OS, so try the following...

  # cd qemud
  # rm remote_protocol.c
  # make remote_protocol.c
  # cd ..
  # make clean

This should have created a new 'remote_protocol.c' using Apple's rpcgen
program. So now try and build the whole of libvirt again.
