Can x86_64 building be added to xc_linux_build.c rather than having a
new file?

If you look at the dom0 builder (domain_builder.c) I was able to share
code almost entirely, except for actually building the intial

I'd like to see more merging in the builders rather than less as we
risk having six builders with fair chunks of shared code between them
(32- and 64-bit versions of linux/plan9/vmx builders).
