Yep, just after the post to the mailing list, i re-read carefully
the documentation and saw that it was a gcc version problem.
I upgraded to 3.2.2 and everything works fine.
Thanks a lot for your answer.

What version of GCC are you using? I suspect 2.95 which is too old for
building Xen and XenLinux. Upgrade to at least 3.2.x or 3.3.x.

% make ARCH=xen oldconfig
% make ARCH=xen dep
% make ARCH=xen bzImage

And here is what i got :

Sorry if it is a trivial/common question, i searched the mailing list
but found nothing about such a problem.
Any help is apreciated.
Thanks a lot and long life to Xen.
