The patch I'm proposing here adds native support to Virtual Distributed
Ethernet using libvdeplug.

A small example:
- patch latest svn with the attached patch
- configure qemu to use vde support (disabled by default) using
  "./configure --enable-vde"

When no libvdeplug is available it silently ignores the user selection.
I changed that, removed a hardcoded -lvdeplug in Makefile, and committed
the result.

I've changed it to enable vde support by default if the library is present and changed --enable-vde to --disable-vde.

This is how we use other external libraries (like gnutls). Since the user has to explicitly ask to use libvde, there seems to be no harm in enabling it by default.
