xen shares a problem with a lot of python installers: if you build the xen on a file system mounted with root squash, the install fails:

if [ -r System.map -a -x /sbin/depmod ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F System.map -b / -r; fi make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/rminnich/src/xen-3.0-testing.hg/linux-'
make -C linux- ARCH=i386 INSTALL_PATH=/ vmlinuz
make[3]: Entering directory `/home/rminnich/src/xen-3.0-testing.hg/linux-'
rm: cannot remove `.kernelrelease': Permission denied
make[3]: *** [.kernelrelease] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/rminnich/src/xen-3.0-testing.hg/linux-'
make[2]: *** [build] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/rminnich/src/xen-3.0-testing.hg'
make[1]: *** [linux-2.6-xen-install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/rminnich/src/xen-3.0-testing.hg'
make: *** [install-kernels] Error 1

This is a particularly annoying attribute of many python install tools, that you can't run it as root and you can't NOT run it as root.

I don't know how this ought to be fixed, but note that (e.g.) linux install gets this one right.
