Huh?  Why are you building 0.9.10 instead of the latest 1.1.3?

What configure options did you use when you built libvirt?  Manually
copying single files onto a target machine is almost always wrong; much
better is to 'make install' (perhaps with an appropriate
DESTDIR=/staging setting), then place that entire installed tree into
place on the destination.  If you are using a Fedora-based distro, 'make
rpm' will even turn your self-built binary into an rpm that you can
install using your package manager, for much easier control over getting
everything right.
