Don't apologize - it's something that upstream gnulib needs to fix
someday, even if the downstream libvirt patch wasn't actually pointing
out a gnulib regression.  But I don't know how many active FreeBSD users
are on the gnulib list to help with the analysis effort, so it may be a
while before fixes appear (at any rate, a failed gnulib test is not
necessarily a reason to hold up a downstream release).
