Right now, AFAIK it's not actually installed since it's a developer tool and 
it's assumed you have a copy of the repository hanging around somewhere to 
get the format definitions from...

Having a default path in /etc/xen/xentrace_format.defs would enable 
xentrace_format to translate xentrace output "out of the box".  If that route 
were taken, then xentrace_format should still be able to take a format file 
as an argument to override the default.

Does that sound OK?
