11.1 amd64
Part of the build log with error:
checking for numad... no
checking for init script type... none
checking for whether to install sysctl config... no
configure: error: Can't build nss plugin without yajl
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to novel@FreeBSD.org [maintainer] and attach the
"/tmp/work/usr/ports/devel/libvirt/work/libvirt-3.6.0/config.log" including
the output of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea
to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. a
/usr/local/sbin/pkg-static info -g -Ea).

Thanks for the PR; I'll check if the nss plugin really needs yajl and will either add a dependency or try to fix that upstream.

By the way, another possible workaround is to enable the QEMU option which pulls yajl.

yajl already installed:
$ pkg info | grep yajl
yajl-2.1.0                     Portable JSON parsing and serialization library in ANSI C

Yeah, it needs to be instructed to look for yajl in /usr/local; could you please check if the attached patch works for you?

  devel/libvirt: add yajl dependency for nss

  The nss plugin requires yajl. It's pulled for qemu when it's enabled, but
  build fails when nss plugin is enabled and qemu driver is disabled, so
  add a dependency on yajl for both options.
