Yes, jhbuild is being a bit convoluted when building things, it uses
./configure --prefix $prefix ..., but then it does a
make install DESTDIR=$prefix/_jhbuild (or something like this), and
then it moves the files to the right place in $prefix after cleaning up the
old version of the library that might be there. I just tried without
using jhbuild to build libvirt, but just the tarballs, and I can reproduce
when using make install DESTDIR=... and then cleaning $prefix from libvirt
libs, and then copying what's in DESTDIR to $prefix. Not sure it's worth
spending a lot of time on this convoluted scenario :)
