I like this approach (although I don't like Perl, but at least it's better
than reams of bash, which is definitely the pits ;-). The Solaris guys won't
like the gcc attributes, but they can add some flexibility to the script to
target the pragmas/extensions of their own compiler.

Xen seems committed to using Python already (not that I am too
thrilled about that, but at least Python code is readable to the
occasional hacker), could we try to limit the amount of arcane
scripting languages that have to be supported when building Xen, i.e.
not add Perl as a build-time dependency?
