My understanding, also born out by real installs, indicates that prior
to 10.x and -current there was separate modules directories for Xen, the
amd64-xen thing.  At 10.x and after, however, that was eliminated and
there is only one.  I have a pure PV 10.x guest that appears to work
just fine with modules pointing at /stand/amd64/10.0/modules.
