I suspect this is the key to my solution. I'm certain I don't have the xen-
devel installed on my machine. This explains also why the 'make check' fails 
as well, I cant remember what the message was exactly, but it had something 
to do with 'no support'.. I will let you know.

Thanks for the help.

Best regards,
