I'd actually prefer this since you install NetBSD/i386 first and then switch
to the NetBSD/xen kernel.
There might be 2 problems with this though:
- if arch/i386/conf/GENERIC_XEN doesn't compile, release for i386 will fail
- nothing will build the NetBSD/xen loader and documentation
> this would avoid having to have another port to "release".
I was thinking that we could maybe add a knob which prevents building the
sets at all for build.sh -m xen-*.
