I would just test the presence of the /kern/xen node. If it's present,
you are under a Xen environment. If it's not, it's a "native" system.

if [ -e /kern/xen ]; then

Note: this might change in the future (when everything will eventually
go into /dev). There will be a sysctl (under machdep. probably) to
provide an equivalent check, but nothing is decided for now.
