Good morning

I've faced a couple of problems building Xen 4.0.0, 4.0.1 and 4.0.2rc1
from sources on an itanium2 machine running debian 6.0

I'll describe the problems i've faced with all three releases.

XEN 4.0.0:

Downloaded with hg:

hg clone -r RELEASE-4.0.0 http://xenbits.xen.org/xen-4.0-testing.hg

Almost everything compiles, the problem i'm facing it's when make world
it's building the xen tools:

gcc  -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -std=gnu99 -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-unused-value -Wdeclaration-after-statement
-D__XEN_TOOLS__ -MMD -MF .xc_dom_ia64.o.d  -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE
-D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_GNU_SOURCE -I../../xen/common/libelf -Iia64
-Werror -Wmissing-prototypes  -I. -I../xenstore -I../include -c -o
xc_dom_ia64.o xc_dom_ia64.c

make[3]: exiting `/root/xen-4.0.0/tools'
make[2]: *** [subdirs-install] Error 2
make[2]: exiting `/root/xen-4.0.0/tools'

This particular problem also occurs in 4.0.1 and 4.0.2rc1 (testing) when
issuing: "make tools"

It must be something i'm missing, but i can't see what it could be (all
the build dependencies are met), i'm using gcc-4.4.5

XEN 4.0.1 & XEN 4.0.2rc1 (testing)

This two releases were downloaded also cloning with mercurial.

In addition to the problem compiling "tools" that i've described above
,this happens when making core xen or issuing "make world":


d -g  -T xen.lds.s -N -Map /root/xen-4.0.1/xen/.xen-syms.0.map
linux-xen/head.o /root/xen-4.0.1/xen/common/built_in.o

/root/xen-4.0.2rc1/xen/common/kexec.c:493: undefined reference to
make[3]: *** [/root/xen-4.0.2rc1/xen/xen-syms] Error 1

Digging up and googling i've found out nothing, but seems weird that
particularly continue_hypercall_on_cpu() it's only present in
architecture specific include files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if it's pointing me to the
right direction for a successfull build.

Have a nice day.
