Trimming unnecessary quoted material would help.

I see you are trying to use xm here -- xm/xend are not supported on ARM,
only xl is supported.

Correct, they are unrelated.

There should be no python issue because you shouldn't be trying to use
anything which uses Python (specifically xend) in the first place. The
tree referenced from the wiki page includes a patch which disables
building of the python stuff altogether when cross compiling. Perhaps
you have some stale python stuff installed from your previous attempts
with another tree?

Those people likely aren't cross compiling in an Ubuntu chroot, they are
probably building natively on an armhf system running Debian.
