make[2]: entrant dans le répertoire «

Pulling changes from http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg
into linux-2.6.18-xen.hg.
pulling from http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg
searching for changes
no changes found

However, I just found out than using the repository was just the default
behaviour. The following env variables allow to use a local pristine

export XEN_LINUX_SOURCE=tarball
export KETCHUP=/bin/true

It's just a bit difficult to grab in the makefile to find it :/
