     This is old enough, so okay.

} sysutils/xenkernel45
} sysutils/xentools45

     However, as noted earlier, I object to removing these.  These
aren't that old, and are actually the second newest ones that we
currently have in pkgsrc.  Upgrading Xen is often a pain if you
have production systems running as guests.  And, some have noted
that there seem to be problems with running certain types of guests,
i.e. Ubuntu, on the latest Xen in pkgsrc.
