OK, so I understand now, you mean this:

The answer is yes, you should be able to compile and run libvirt
client & server on all of those platforms.  If you find a specific
compile problem, report it on this list.

I guess you should be aware that you or your customers may have a hard
time getting commercial support for (eg) running non-standard Xen
kernels on RHEL 4.
