[libvirt] [PATCH] build: don't require avahi during install

See: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=785269

The specfile requires avahi during install if libvirt was built with
avahi support, but there are many situations where it is undesirable
to install avahi due to security concerns. If we still Build-require
avahi-devel during the build, but don't require it at install time, it
will be used if present, and ignored if not.
