libcacard is built as part of QEMU source code. QEMU needs glusterfs
but  libcacard should not need it. I'd guess that QEMU's hand-crafted
makefiles have fubar'd the linker args, adding '-lglusterfs' to the
libcacard build, despite it not being used. Best file a bug against
QEMU for this, as it should definitely be fixed.
