This is not right.  There is no such thing as a "Xen toolchain".  A
Xen toolchain is just an i386 toolchain; a NetBSD/xen kernel should
be configured and built with the standard i386 tools.

There seems to have been some merge mistake that has caused NetBSD/xen
kernels to not build in -current at the moment.  But I assure you they
do in fact build (and work) on the 2.0 branch.
