NB, even if you merely want to use Xen guests, you still need to have the
QEMU driver available because it provides the impl of the networking APIs
which is shared between both QEMU & Xen.

The way the --withouts are implemented currently is that the body of each
file is #ifdef'd. Slightly sucky to be honest - it would be better to
put the logic in the Makefile.am, just adjusting the list ofsource files
which are built as you suggest

Actaully the qemud directory has nothing todo with QEMU anymore - its only
the generic daemon code now. We didn't rename it since the source code dir
name is merely a cosmetic thing & its better to keep CVS history intact.

Going to say in place, unless we ever switch to non-CVS scm which can do
renames while preserving history.
