Thanks for the review; however, I will defer pushing this patch until I
also have time to fix a couple of fallout problems (my goal is to get
this all squared away before 0.9.9).  In particular, ./autobuild.sh now
fails with:

  CCLD   libvirt_driver_nwfilter.la
../gnulib/lib/.libs/libgnu.a(allocator.o):(.data.rel.ro+0x0): multiple
definition of `stdlib_allocator'
../gnulib/lib/.libs/libgnu.a(allocator.o):(.data.rel.ro+0x0): first
defined here

that is, I think we're incorrectly linking gnulib in from multiple
helper libraries somewhere along the way.
