That's one of those "it's hard to tell things".

However, you might be in luck. :)

Because you're just needing the libvirt client, there's a chance that the broken
pieces are in an option you don't need.

So, try turning off the compiling for as many options as possible, using
configure switches.  Using this kind of approach:

  $ ./configure --with-libvirtd=no (add more options here if needed)

It will mean a bit of experimentation on your part, but it's worth trying.

Btw, one of the important options to turn off is the macvtap one,  The macvtap
code seem to directly use the function you mention is broken, so avoid that one.

You ok to try this out?

Regards and best wishes,
