Since the Makefile doesn't ship in the tarball but only Makefile.in,
which requires "./configure" be run before "make rpm" be run, that
would mean that you don't need the libvirt.spec to be shipped in the
tarball and you only want libvirt.spec.in and once you run ./configure
it'll generate libvirt.spec. So in fact reverting that change is

Unless of course I'm missing something.
