Why would you need to?

Problem is that the xen module needs the kernel headers for your
current running platform which will not be accurate when you
are setarch'd to i386.

Maybe if you can get the i386 xen kernel headers installed, if you
use mock you will have better luck I believe. Or run a build under
an identical i386 PVM.
