Would that mean I would have to have the xen headers and libs installed
(like in recent autoconf-using vmtools) to be able to compile these?  I
just spent the afternoon yesterday editing all the autoconf-cr*p out of
vmtools, because I prefer to be able to compile everything from the xen
tree without having to do a make install of xen first.

If this is the case, please don't. I have Jamfiles for most of the core
tools and vmtools for anyone who is interested. They support fast and
clean builds to a separate build-directory (without fear of
name-collisions), and they allow me to have as many xen-checkouts on my
build machine as I want, without being root, without a separate
configure step and resulting mess of autogenerated .h files, and without
any 'make installs'.

Best regards,
