What is the suggested method of creating a NetBSD domain?

What userland tools are needed?

Is the only code outside of the NetBSD source tree needed Twisted?

My thoughts on doing this were to 
        1)  Install NetBSD-2.0 snapshot directly on dedicated partition.
        Copy in Xen kernel.

        2)  create filesystem images on an NetBSD/i386 machine and
dd image into a dedicated partion  (Has anyone tried this using LVM).
My worries are in getting the disk label information correct.

        3) Cross compile NetBSD userland on Xen/Linux machine.
Use cross-compiled disklabel/mkfs to create NetBSD filesystem.

Have the Xen NetBSD patches been merged back into the NetBSD tree?
What is the suggested NetBSD userland  (NetBSD 2.0 RC4)?
