 ah ha!  you are a star.

 i did wonder when i saw that command not being found: i just didn't
 know it was in the iproute package.

 the rest of the packages i found as part of the build process due to
 some excellent notes / error message advice.

 faq, schmaq :)

 can i make a suggestion that a question be added "networking
 doesn't appear to be working properly or stops working when
 in run xend, even though i have xen-br0 up and running and
 interfaces in the guest OSes are there"

 answer: if you have debian, make sure you install iproute and bridge
 packages (see section on list of debian packages required for xen).
