IMO they are useful, particularly when they are correct :-).  They allow
users to see which emulators are available and their complete path,
which in turn can be directly used in the <emulator> element in domainXML.

I do agree that a configure option for libvirt is the way to go here,
allowing packagers to specify where these binaries exist.  I recall
discussions at a past Xen hackathon around the preference to use the
distro's qemu instead of the one provided by Xen.  A configure option
for libvirt would facilitate that.
