You can get that easier and simpler:

Use Ralph Passgang's (member of the debian xen team) readily built
packages, there's even 3.1.2:

deb http://packages.debianbase.de/etch/i386/xen3.1 .
deb-src http://packages.debianbase.de/sources/xen3.1 .

That should work straightforward, the same way as with 3.0.3 on etch -
after the install and maybe an update-grub(but AFAIK this is not needed)
you have a grub bot entry to boot the newest Xen version.
