The package (from pkgsrc-current downloaded on 2008-Jul-18) 
/usr/pkgsrc/sysutils/xenkernel3/ needs some "make" options.  Keeping in mind 
that the current build is 32-bit without PAE, here are two options that would 
be extremely useful:

"make pae" to compile a 32-bit xen3 kernel with PAE support
"make 64bit" to compile a 64-bit xen3 kernel

A default "make 32bit" should also be added, and then if any (or all) three of 
these options are specified, kernels should be built for each of them (with 
resulting kernel files named accordingly).

Not applicable.

To get PAE support, currently a manual edit to the Makefile seems to be 
required (I'm testing this now, but assuming it will work).
