Yes, I've compiled libvirt on Macs in the past.  The RPC library
supplied with OS X doesn't support 64 bit types, so you have to use
PortableXDR as a replacement.  Apart from that it should just work,
and if it doesn't please report any errors & post patches.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
