Greetings, Xen gurus!
Per the Ubuntu community documentation at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Xen#Maverick%20Notes%20(Xen%204.0.1%20pvops%20on%20Ubuntu%2010.10) I am trying to install Xen 4.0.1 from source which I got from bits.xensource.com/oss-xen/release/4.0.1/xen-4.0.1.tar.gz because apparently the ubuntu-xen-server package has broken dependencies.  The instructions as provided state that gettext, bin86, bcc, libc6-dev-i386, iasl, texinfo and git are needed and even after that, I found (presumably because the server was installed with only the core operating system and OpenSSH server) that make world wouldn't run properly and I also needed to install build-essential libssl-dev uuid-dev zlib1g-dev libncurses5-dev libx11-dev and python-dev.
So I've installed all those packages, re-expanded the tarball into an empty directory and tried running make world again but this time I'm running into a different kind of problem. There are thousands of lines of output, but here's the section at the end that seems most salient:

make[1]: *** [install-kernels] Error 1

So, I was wondering if anyone knew if this is an issue with the actual source tarball I have or if I need to be doing something else before the make world to prepare.
Any and all assistance would be GREATLY appreciated!
