  Ouch, in general libvirt and virtualization was added only in RHEL-5
and while we are trying to make sure libvirt still compile on that
platform, we never made any attempt to support RHEL-4, simply because
there is also nothing to support (no xen, qemu ...)

  I still wonder about the usefulness of libvirt on RHEL-4 (except maybe
for the client library part). On my RHEL-4 box, GET_VLAN_VID_CMD is nowhere
to be found, I'm afraid that will be true for many other parts of libvirt
system support on a 2.6.9 linux kernel.
