I think the libs should be built by default as part of the build process
and get installed as part of the regular install. Ie. it becomes part of
the QEMU build process, so it requires a QEMU build to build the support
libraries, but they can be packages into separate RPMs/debs by the
distro people.

I don't think we want a --libs option that turns the build process into
only producing the libs.
