You missed reading this error message.  You either need libnl-devel
installed, or to pass additional --without-* options to configure that
avoid whatever was assuming that libnl was required (based on the error
message, you might have luck with './configure --without-macvtap' if you
aren't in the mood to install things).  It may also be worth patching
libvirt to behave saner by automatically avoiding macvtap when libnl is
not available; patches are welcome, but it's lower priority for most
developers, since most of us tend to build on machines with all the
prereqs installed rather than focusing on minimal builds.

Therefore it is no surprise that there was no makefile created.
Oftentimes, I recommend using './configure && make' rather than
'./configure; make', so that 'make' is not attempted if configure fails.
