It's getting there :-) but it's not quite finished. If you follow the wiki 
build instructions for xenopsd they should work ok (otherwise let me know). 
I've got a set of xapi patches in a branch:


If you install a set of ocaml packages including

$ opam install stdext nbd tapctl libvhd xen-api-libs-transitional omake

And then run

$ ./configure
$ omake phase1
$ omake phase2
$ omake ocaml/xapi/xapi
$ omake ocaml/network/xcp-networkd

Then a xapi and xcp-networkd should spring forth. I still need to package this 
up. I've almost certainly broken a couple of things so don't use these for 
production. Off the top of my head I've definitely broken performance stats -- 
I need to make xenopsd expose data sources for each VM,VBD,VIF rather than have 
xapi do it. Jon Ludlam reckons there's example code for exposing datasources 
lying around somewhere which I should copy.

This is all a bit of a work-in-progress, so I'll try to send regular updates to 
the list!
