  Strange I actually use "make rpm" to make the releases.

  Right it should be desactivated for fedora >= 8 as we use remote
access controlled by policykit there:

%if 0%{?fedora} >= 8
%define with_polkit    0%{!?_without_polkit:1}
%define with_xen_proxy 0

  I would rather try to understand why you have the problem, it does
rebuild here as far as I can tell. I have a xen package installed but
the above rule should prevent the proxy from building.

  I guess there is a different problem, I wonder why on Fedora9 you
would have the above ignored.
