You need to install the  Xen userspace libraries & Xen header files since 
libvirt will link against / include some of them.a

Basically look in the 'xen' and 'xen-devel' RPMs from FC6 - every file they
list under /usr/lib & /usr/include are the ones you want. To be honest best
bet is to  just do a proper install of all the Xen bits rather than manually
copying around individual files.
