Ansis told me the same thing.  It seems package names have changed from
the version of libvirt that the reporter uses, to the version of libvirt
that is currently in the Debian archive.

But Ansis also brought up the point that it might make more sense for
libvirt to add this dependency in the reverse direction.  I will consult
with the libvirt team (probably by reassigning this bug to libvirt with
a query).
