So if I understand correctly, you are trying to re-bootstrap libvirt
rather than using a tarball which has already been bootstrapped, but in
the process, you don't want to use git.  Why?  From an rpm perspective,
it seems like you should have no need to rerun bootstrap - use the
existing tarball which has already been bootstrapped.  Without a solid
reasoning why it is desirable to rerun bootstrap without having the full
compliment of developer tools available, I don't see what this patch
buys you.
