I can't generally see the value of 'installing' if all that means is just 
copying. I'm
doing this with basically all other components I use non-distro versions of, 
problems. Xen is the first one to cause me real headaches here.

Also, the 'few hardcoded paths' seem to be scattered all around the various 
so it doesn't look like a rather simple job to (a) spot them all and (b) fix
