libvirt built automatically on mips64el because it previously was on
bd-uninstallable, which got fixed with qemu 2.11. And since the build-deps were
finally installable, it automatically transitioned to needs-build.

Why does it matter which qemu version libvirt is built against? That sort of
inconsistency happens all the time. So long as there aren't incompatible
changes, it's not a problem. I'm thus closing this report.
