The current interface driver used in combination with libvirtd is
nefcf [1] based. If your libvirt is compiled without netcf then there
will be no interface support for QEMU, Xen and so on.

You'll also need to have a distro (e.g. Fedora) that supports netcf or
is supported by netcf, because netcf handles the interface
configuration files and those are in different locations of have other
distro dependent differences.
