Oh, I wouldn't mind sticking the configure script into the root xen dir. I'd 
love to do a configure --with-kernels="linux-2.6-xen0 linux-2.6-xen1" 
--with-custom-kernel-builddir=../my_xen_stuff or something similar.

But you are right: I am concerned about the tools. Not even I do not see the 
need to autotoolize the guestkernels and the xen hypervisor does not benefit 
much from a configure script at this point. The later might change in time 

As I said: I am not stuck on using the autotools, but they seem to be the best 
solution to this problem at the moment.
