This is a legitimate concern but these checks should definitely not be
in the configure script, so I've applied Roger's patches to remove

This should definitely be fixed.

I think the right answer is to add some checks in xencommons.  Since
the purpose is to help the user diagnose problems, it's fine for them
to be warnings rather than causing xencommons not to work at all.

And given that we only want to check for brctl and udev, and those are
pretty simple, I don't think we need to use autoconf for that.
