sysctl tunables sound like they are Linux-specific.  And the actual
installation of libvirtd.sysctl was introduced in 0.9.7 (commit
5298551), not 0.9.8.

But there was some Makefile.am refactoring for 0.9.8 related to
installation of systemd init scripts for Linux; perhaps that
re-factoring exposed a problem with installing libvirtd.sysctl on
non-Linux systems?

Sounds like we need a patch to daemon/Makefile.am to disable
installation of the sysctl file on non-Linux systems.
