I should have been more specific: I use RHEL5.
My workaround was to disable the libvirt_proxy-stuff and rebuilt the 
PolicyKit/ConsoleKit for RHEL5.
With the patch issued by you here: 
"make rpm" works flawless and no need anymore for the PolicyKit or 
ConsoleKit anymore.
I must have missed to answer to that other post with the RHEL5-patch.
