Are you on i386 or amd64?  I guess i386 given the '686' above.  I tried
it on amd64 and it built fine there.  XEN is NOT enabled on the 2.6.25
amd64 kernel.  Perhaps that is an inconsistency that should be fixed in
the kernel package.  The changelog says they are enabling xen guest
support in all x86 kernels.
