This doesn't sound like compilation issue at all.
It sounds like initrd or configuration issue.

Some questions:

- You're trying to build/compile a custom dom0 kernel? or are you talking about 
domU kernel?
- Can't you use the centos 5.3 kernel-xen?
- Please paste your boot/console log so we can figure out why your boot fails. 
  If it's dom0 kernel, then you need to set up a serial console to capture the 
boot/console output.
