It's done for e2fsprogs-devel on F13.
I should care only about :-
# yum install

The last is mentioned in XenWiki 4.0 in section -

Packages required to build Xen 4.0 from source on Fedora 11, 12, or 13, in addition to all the usual development tools and libraries:

yum groupinstall "Development Libraries"
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
yum install transfig wget texi2html libaio-devel dev86 \
glibc-devel e2fsprogs-devel gitk mkinitrd iasl xz-devel \
bzip2-devel pciutils-libs pciutils-devel SDL-devel \
libX11-devel gtk2-devel bridge-utils PyXML \
qemu-common qemu-img mercurial glibc-devel.i686

Well, you need to have ext4 support in your dom0's e2fsprogs or directly implement in libfsimage in order to have pygrub (I don't know how are the things with pvgrub) working for PV domUs that have ext4 boot partition and this resides always in dom0.
