No, you have to edit a plain text python file,
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/xen/xend/server/blkif.py around
line 59 it should say something like:

if typ not in ('phy', 'file', 'tap'):

Change it to say:

if typ not in ('phy', 'file', 'tap', 'drbd'):

That should at least get you in the right direction if it doesn't
immediately help you.
