[libvirt-users] How to specify the libvirtd in connect call

    Here is my situation, I install libvirt in a non-default directory
and start libvird with sudo. While I can connect virsh to libvirtd
using "virsh --connect qemu:///system", I fail to connect my app using
"virConnectOpen("qemu:///system")", which complains "unable to locate
libvirtd daemon in $PATH".  Then, I take another try and add the path
of libvirtd in env variable PATH. Unfortunately, it doesn't work.
    I read through the api reference and find no place to specify this
path explicitly.

Thanks for any tip.
