When I run this (after installing with a prefix of /xen42), xend fails
to start, but no error messages are printed:

  # /xen42/etc/rc.d/xend onestart
  Starting xenbackendd.
  Starting xend.

I see that the /xen42/etc/rc.d/xend script redirects the error
messages from "${SBINDIR}/xend start" to /dev/null...  Running
"/xen42/sbin/xend start" manually from the shell shows that it
fails because it tries to start "blktapctrl" but no such program
is installed.

Does this mean the caveat discussed in
no longer applies?
