That implies a bug in gnulib; I'll see if I can get it fixed today; we'd
need to update the gnulib submodule of libvirt to pull in the fix, so
hopefully I can get it done in time before the rc2 build is cut.  Can
you show me the config.log output related to detecting whether 'struct
random_data' exists?  Is this a case of circular header inclusion on
FreeBSD (that is, does <sys/types.h> try to recursively include
<stdlib.h> to pick up the struct?)
