Libvirt only creates /etc/xen files for old variants of xen, basically
only on RHEL5 vintage systems. Everything else is stored wherever xend
saves it.

You don't need to use the config files for starting domains, just use
virsh: 'virsh start $your-vm-name'. See 'virsh list --all' for all
available VMs.

Libvirt supports xen autostart, just use 'virsh autostart $your-vm-name'
to set the flag.
