Newer rpms are supposed to do that automatically, but I dont know what
"newer" actually means. And certainly it does not hurt to keep this.

+cd %{_xenroot}
+dist/install.sh \$RPM_BUILD_ROOT/
+# Don't include xen-syms
+rm -f boot/xen-syms*
+# Remove all the "linked" xen-*.gz files
+rm -f \$(find boot/ -type l)
"find $paht -type l -delete"?


In this case, to avoid package conflicts, add some tags like:

Obsoletes: xen-libs
Obsoletes: xen-tools

What exactly would this be for?

Also "Release: unstable" could be some automatically increasing number,
like 'date +%s'. This avoids the need for "rpm -Uvh --force xen.rpm".
Not sure how package managers deal with missing digits in the Release:
tag. If in doubt, set it to 0.

I'll give this a think.

Thanks for the feedback!
