I've forgot two dependencies here:

There's a new rc, you can fetch it using:

# git checkout 4.2.0-rc5

This is (probably) the final release.

[I'm skipping the rest of the text, since it's exactly the same]

I've also been notified by Andreas Gustafsson that the build of SeaBIOS
fails under NetBSD 5.1 (using gcc 4.1.3) with the following error:

So this version of Xen is only available for NetBSD 6.x right now.
