I think it's probably worth highlighting this a bit further to both the
-devel@ and -users@ lists.

As of xen staging changeset:
        commit 13d68fab40051e82a40c01e968ca6167ecb92dbd

            tools+stubdom: install under /usr/local by default.

Xen will install its tools and libraries under /usr/local and not /usr.
This commit is currently in the staging tree and will be pushed to
master whenever the tests pushed.

If you are building from source and installing without package
management (i.e. you are using "make install" or "make dist" etc) then
you will want to clear out any previous remnants from /usr before
updating so you don't end up with a stale copy of the libraries etc
confusing things. You may also need to run ldconfig.

You can revert to the old behaviour with "./configure --prefix=/usr"

Nothing changes in the stable branches due to this change, although
obviously Xen 4.3 will include this change when it is released.
