Wow, that's terrible. Just as a data point, is the time more reasonable
if you copy the source first then build locally?

Ok, in the process of starting xend (for the first time in a boot), the physical NIC is brought down, the bridges are set up and then the NIC is brought up again, this is described in: http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/ XenNetworking#head-04ebcc1760dbc4678e83b116afa310dc0612dc39

I worked with Maria on this and it turns out that she has a NFS mount in her path, am surprised it ever worked.

So it looks like we cannot have any networking dependencies (nfsroot anyone) until xend has started.
