netbsd/xen on RHEL5.2 dom0?


I am interested in installing the netbsd/xen port onto a RedHat 5.2/64- bit machine that I have access to. This machine is already running some Linux domU's. Here is some information about the Xen environment:

[root@XXXXXX ~]# virsh
Welcome to virsh, the virtualization interactive terminal.

Type:  'help' for help with commands
       'quit' to quit

virsh # version
Compiled against library: libvir 0.3.3
Using library: libvir 0.3.3
Using API: Xen 3.0.1
Running hypervisor: Xen 3.1.0

My understanding of this version of Xen, is that if I was to perform paravirtualization of a domU host, then said host must also be running as 64-bit:


However, in poking around, I could only find a 32-bit netbsd- XEN3_DOMU.gz kernel. For example, I looked here:


I poked around on the FTP server, but couldn't find a corresponding XEN3_DOMU kernel that was compiled 64-bit (amd64). However, poking around in CVS shows that there is a config file for such a kernel:


So, is the correct procedure for me to compile a 64-bit netbsd/xen kernel before I attempt to install? Can anybody give me any hints in advance as to whether-or-not NetBSD will work on the host that I have described above?
