Well, to get it running at first try to simply
"emerge xen", emerge "xen-sources"
that would install the hypervisor in /boot/xen.gz and a xen-patched linux 
source tree in /usr/src

depending on what you unmasked, you'll get a 2.0.7 or some (older) 3.0 

if you need a fresher snapshot, have a look at the ebuilds and do things the 
same way, or simply create a new ebuild for the current snapshot.



has step-by-step instructions for installing xen + making the nptl glibc Xen
