cloning to F16

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #694403 +++

Description of problem:
When I did a yum update today in Fedora 15 branch,  I get

" Updating   : libvirt-client-0.8.8-4.fc15.x86_64                        14/132 

Note: This output shows SysV services only and does not include native
      systemd services. SysV configuration data might be overriden by native
      systemd configuration.

  Updating   : libvirt-python-0.8.8-4.fc15.x86_64                        15/132 

Looking at the spec,  it uses chkconfig --list and using that provides this output.  You should be using systemctl instead and add a dependency.  If you are migrated services from sysv to systemd,  refer to

Really, it should just do 'chkconfig --level $level <service>' to check if a service is enabled. The scriptlet as is today will already fail if you're running in a non-english locale, for example.

This should be backported to F15, and cloned to F16.

    spec: don't use chkconfig --list
    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=694403 reports that
    the specfile is incorrectly checking for a running libvirt-guests
    service.  For example,
    $ LC_ALL=es_ES chkconfig --list libvirt-guests
    libvirt-guests        0:desactivado          1:desactivado     2:desactivado     3:activo 5:activo         6:desactivado
    will fail to find 5:on, even though it is active.  But chkconfig
    already has a mode where you can silently use the exit status to
    check for an active service.
    * libvirt.spec.in (%post): Use simpler chkconfig options, to avoid
    issues with localization.
