The wiki at http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenPPC/Build states

if your cross toolchain is not capable of generating both 64-bit and 32-bit code then you will have to add CROSS32_COMPILE=powerpc- unknown-linux-gnu- to all you Linux building commands.

I have been iusing CROSS_COMPILE32. Is this a type or would both work?

hmm, WRT to Linux, _only_ CROSS32_COMPILE should work.
If CROSS_COMPILE32 then nothing special will happen and your compiler you defined with CROSS_COMPILER can handle both.

Also it states:

make -C ~/xen/xenppc-unstable.hg/xen DOM0_IMAGE=~/xen/linux/xen/ arch/powerpc/boot/zImage

Is zImage also supposed to work in this command.  I use vmlinux.strip.

Yes a zImage can now be used (and vmlinux* will also work), it results in a much smaller image and can allow you to imbed a ramdisk if you wish.
