Hmm, I think something may have gone wrong with configure.ac checking
for lokkit. The version in RHEL-5 is too old and does not support the
features libvirt needs - it should only have enabled itself when it
detected the lokkit from Fedora 10 or later IIRC.

As a workaround set  --disable-iptables-lokkit  when running configure
