To make xen-tools building out-of-the box, NetBSD needs the following 

   It misses the POSIX API  posix_memalign(3)
   I need this to make tools/blktap in xen-tools building

libc (amd64 only):
   /usr/include/i386/* is missing. When an application does

   #include <stdint.h>

   and is compiled with gcc -m32, then the compiler must get
   /usr/include/i386/stdint.h. Linking against -lc should link
   against the 32bit libc, of course.

   With this done, it will be possible to build the xen-tools firmware
   which is required to launch HVM guests with a 64bit NetBSD/Xen Dom0.
