Where can I read up about the different backends available? Is it a
compile-time setting or can I configure that on my system?

Actually, I'm doing the configuration outside of libvirt anyway (with
systemd-networkd), I just want the interface to be in virt-manager's
selection dropdown, so I don't care too much about netcf.
