which xen rpms did you install? The ones from centos, or the ones from
xensource?

Generally when building for x86_64, it's best to remove all traces of
x86 packages on the system. If you're doing some cross-compiling
(building x86 on x86_64) then it's far easier to use a build utility
like mock which creates your environment for you in a separate area.
While it requires a bunch more space, it produces 'clean' rpms which
are untainted by any strays packages or source installed bits you may
have on the system.
