There's a symbol defined for this kind of test:


(from <guestfs.h>).

However in this case I wonder if it would be better to test for this
in the ./configure script and disable the HAVE_LIBGUESTFS automake
conditional (but probably not error out -- we want to still compile on
RHEL 6).  What do you think?
