There's a default config (defconfig) in the xenolinux tree. 

Just type "make mrproper oldconfig dep bzImage"

['mrproper' deletes the previous .config, 'oldconfig' copies the
default arch xeno config to .config.]

If you want to stop it rebooting if something goes wrong, use the
'noreboot' xen command line option. You should then be able to
examine the error message. Alternatively, connect a serial
console and enable serial output with the 'ser_baud' xen command
line option.
