is xen-2.0.6 or xen-2.0-testing supposted to compile with gcc4 (FC4)?
They actually don't.

We use gcc-3.2.x and 3.3.x ourselves. We accept patches to unstable to keep the build working with gcc4 but even then, I've seen weird crashes (e.g., dom0 unable to even reach a boot prompt) that I have never observed when building with gcc3.

In short: I recommend you to install a gcc3-series compiler and build with that. It's very easy to do and then you're on the same page as us.
