Why do you want to build the Xen driver on Windows ? Windows isn't a
Xen host, so it seems rather pointless. For a Windows client all you
need to build is the 'remote' driver. Our recommended configure options
for a Windows build are:

  ./configure \
    --without-sasl \
    --without-avahi \
    --without-polkit \
    --without-python \
    --without-xen \
    --without-qemu \
    --without-lxc \
    --without-uml \
    --without-openvz \

This gives you a libvirt.so containing the remote client that can talk
to libvirtd on any UNIX host.
