Here is my test result with attached patch:

1. qemu_helperdir = libexecdir = $prefix/libexec moves. Affection: 
/usr/libexec/qemu-bridge-helper moves to 


   As the C code already understands this path change, it's not a problem.

2. qemu_confdir = $prefix/etc/qeum moves. Affection: 
/usr/etc/qemu/target-x86_64.conf moves to 

   Also seems the C code understand this path change.

3. It seems nothing will conflict with system qemu or qemu-kvm any more.

I think it's the right way to go.

I will do more test and report any issues I find.
