Hmm, that's very weird. I've just cloned and installed a fresh opam repo on my 
ubuntu dev-box, and I've run:

$ opam init mirage http://mirage.github.com/opam
$ opam switch -alias xen 3.12.1+mirage-xen

and everything runs fine.

Could you have a look at any ocamlfind.env files you can find in ~/.opam/ ?

I'm running some more tests, but I'm a bit puzzle by your issue. Maybe you can 
try to repro it with OPAMDEBUG=1 and send me the execution trace ?

Completely agree, my tiny EC2 VM is not able to compile ocaml without crashing, 
so if someone has a bigger build machine available, I would be happy to set-up 
something there.

you can run "opam install `opam list -short`" if you want to install all
