   Build problems
   --------------
   
   Ideally, all versions of Xen in pkgsrc would build on all versions of
   NetBSD on both i386 and amd64.  However, that isn't the case.  Besides
   aging code and aging compilers, qemu (included in xentools for HVM
   support) is difficult to build.  The following are known to fail:
   
           xenkernel3 netbsd-6 i386
           xentools42 netbsd-6 i386 
   
   The following are known to work:
   
           xenkernel41 netbsd-5 amd64
           xentools41 netbsd-5 amd64
           xenkernel41 netbsd-6 i386
           xentools41 netbsd-6 i386
