The AMD64 tree isn't building a bzImage in arch/x86_64/boot/ ,
and the top level vmlinuz doesn't seem to work with GRUB
(or I'm passing the wrong arguments, I'm not sure).

Here's my grub boot line:
        kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz-2.6.15-xen-dom0 root=/dev/hda5
        initrd (hd0,0)/initrd-2.6.15-xen-dom0

I get a GRUB error "Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable
format" when I try to boot, though.

kernel line should reference the Xen image, then a module line to reference the dom0 kernel image, then a second module line (not initrd line) to reference the initrd image.

Your current grub boot lines are trying to load a xenlinux image directly as if it were a native linux boot image.
