I tried to compile xen4 today and I have foudn two problems 

1) There is a problem during xen kernel link 
rc/xen-unstable.hg/xen/ -C arch/x86 /root/src/xen-unstable.hg/xen/xen
gmake[3]: Entering directory `/root/src/xen-unstable.hg/xen/arch/x86'
gmake -f /root/src/xen-unstable.hg/xen/ -C

gmake[4]: Entering directory `/root/src/xen-unstable.hg/xen/arch/x86/boot'
RELOC= gmake -f reloc.S

gmake[1]: *** [install] Error 2
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/root/src/xen-unstable.hg/xen'

2) xen wants to have git installed during build, to fetch qemu sources. Can I 
suppress this behavior somehow ?
