It seems broken actually. Here's the relevant bits from
/usr/lib/libvirt/libvirt-guests.sh on Ubuntu 13.10:
test -f "$sysconfdir"/sysconfig/libvirt-guests &&
However there is no /etc/sysconfig/ dir at all (nor /var/lock/subsys).
The end user could create these directories, but I'm guessing that
Ubuntu should have moved this to a more suitable location for the
distro (/etc/default, I think).
Note that this is NOT broken on Debian. Debian is patching
libvirt-guests.sh to move the configuration to /etc/default.
To Peng Yu: Please file a bug against Ubuntu.
