Yes, these are known problems. We're starting to work on getting xapi to build with opam. You may want to check out Dave's wiki post on building xenopsd: http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Building_Xenopsd

If someone show way to take generic distro, some repos all around the
world and make xapi rpm it whould be really gracious. Because I already
spend about four days fighting with ocaml, opam and libraries to get
stuff done... I still no success. I already plan set of features to
implement in XCP (for example, allow masks in ipv4_allowed/ipv6_allowed
fields), but really ashamed I can't say our software engineers how to
compile existing code.

Fixing this kind of stuff has been my new year's resolution, but I haven't had time to start work on it just yet. There are a bunch of other people in the office who feel the same way (especially Dave Scott, Jon Ludlam and James Bulpin), so I have a feeling things will get easier pretty soon.

Are you on #xen-api on Freenode? If you've got questions about ocaml or xapi, feel free to ask them there. There are usually a few xapi devs in there during UK business hours.
