I can reproduce this on Debian 9 and Fedora 31. The issue is that
virtfs-proxy-helper is only built if two development libraries (libcap
and libattr) are installed, which typically aren't included by default
in Linux distros. I think virtfs support should be made a non-default
option that someone would enable when they expressly want it, and have
first installed the necessary upstream header packages to support
compilation. By default, it will break more often than not.
