That's probably because configure did not find an xsltproc program,
and without that, the Makefile.am rule in docs/devhelp/Makefile.am
doesn't even try to create libvirt.devhelp, even though it's
required for distribution.

You can work around it by running "touch docs/devhelp/libvirt.devhelp".

I suspect this hasn't come up before because everyone else running
"make dist" already had xsltproc installed.

There are a couple of other minor problems in the vicinity,
so I'll propose a patch.
