We don't typically use 'make world' in Fedora Xen builds because that
builds the ancient 2.6.16 kernels from upstream Xen. Instead the Xen
kernels for Fedora are based on the current 2.6.18 tree and the source
for these is distributed in the kernel src.rpm. The 'xen' RP is only
used for building userspace - we better to just to 'make tools' instead
of 'make world'.

You need to build libvncserver first, eg in the RPM spec we do:

 # pushd LibVNCServer-0.8.2
 # ./configure
 # make -C libvncserver
 # vncdir=`pwd`
 # popd
 # sed -i -e "s;libvncserver-config;${vncdir}/libvncserver-config;" tools/xenfb/Makefile

Before going in to building any of the Xen bits
