Is it possible to configure the full path name of the ebtables executable used somewhere in libvirt's config?

That's done in when you're building from source. Look for "optional_programs".

Noted. Thanks.

Background: I'd like to avoid automatic alternatives implementation to mess up libvirt installation.

I don't think the problem is what is being suggested in that bug.

Yes, it is.

follow the symlink from /sbin/ebtables to (probably)
/etc/alternatives/ebtables > [..]
This sounds more like SUSE has some sort of special off-brand
alternative that doesn't understand all valid ebtables commands
openSUSE Tumbleweed now uses libalternatives for ebtables (see my comment#2) and thus /sbin/ebtables was linked to /usr/bin/alts. Yes, something's broken there and I was looking for a work-around.

Anyway, I think you'd be better off fixing the problem at the source
rather than trying to make some special local build of libvirt to
work around the problem.
IMHO a libvirtd.conf option would be great to avoid relying on this alternatives stuff.

Ciao, Michael.
