I tried virsh net-define of the exact same XML and the network was
defined successfully. How was your libvirt package built, and for what
host platform? It sounds like something went wrong with the build process.

(BTW, if you follow kashyap's advice about setting a log destination and
search for "unexpected virtualport type" it would tell us which
function/line number is reporting the error, which might help to
diagnose the problem)
