Just out of curiosity, what new-to-0.9.10 feature do you require?

Those are built from the same sources, and as a part of the process of
building the libvirt package. Once you have the libvirt sources
untarred, you should be able to do something like:

   ./ --system --with-qemu-user=qemu --with-qemu-group=qemu
   make rpm

After you overcome errors related to packages that you need for the
build, this will create all the rpm files for you. You must then update
all of these packages at once:

   rpm -Uvh libvirt-*.i686.rpm

If you need to rebuild and update again, you'll need to add:

   --oldpackage --replacefiles --replacepkgs

to the rpm commandline.

If you have problems with the build process, you should probably ask
questions on libvir-list (the development list) rather than here, so the
responses will be usefully archived.
