The hypervisor maintainers have explicitly required that configure not
be required to build the hypervisor. You can be pretty sure they will
NAK this change, which you didn't even CC to them, I have added them

If the instructions above do not work then I think you need to fix them.

That patch remains wrong. Irrespective of this change the docs subtree
should include its own Perl detection stuff in the configure script,
such that it can be run independently. I explained this in my original
