Since you use Centos5.5, I actually suggest you do not use Xen 4. Not
unless you REALLY know what you're doing.

If you do, I'd actually suggest you use several steps:
1. Install xen hypervisor and tools, either using :
- make xen, make tools, make install-xen, make install-tools, OR
- use packages from http://www.gitco.de/repo/
2. Build dom0 kernel separately.
I use kernel from
using pv_ops, commit 4dd582f with this config:
http://pastebin.com/5L44xXQj and it builds just fine.

There might be some recent changes in Jeremy's git tree that prevents
it from building cleany. In that case xen-devel might be a better
place to ask for help. In the mean time you can try a specific commit
and config that is known to work.
