Have you also tested VPATH builds?  With an in-tree build, I reproduced
your failure with 'make -j3', then the failure went away with plain
'make'; but in a VPATH build, even plain 'make' is still failing without
your patch:

make[5]: Entering directory '/home/eblake/libvirt-tmp/build4/src'
  CC       xenconfig/libvirt_xenconfig_la-xen_xl.lo
../../src/xenconfig/xen_xl.c:29:25: fatal error: xen_xl_disk.h: No such
file or directory
 #include "xen_xl_disk.h"
compilation terminated.
Makefile:9450: recipe for target
'xenconfig/libvirt_xenconfig_la-xen_xl.lo' failed

which means I'm not even sure if we are being careful about the
distinction between srcdir and builddir.

I haven't looked closely at your proposed patch yet, but it's on my list
