I had that same issue recently when building collectd at work. libvirt
on rhel5 has that symbol (virDomainBlockstats or something).
The problem is that autoconf is compiling a test program against
libvirt, which fails because it can find -lxenstore. Adding xen-devel to
the BR of collectd fixes this, but this probably a bug in libvirt.
