with g++ ...

There is no Xen specific API to let you place files in a guests
filesystem and run commands on them. So ssh might be the thing you
have to head for.

But, for curiosity, what are you doing there?
Sounds quite odd to send a cpp file again and again, to cpmpile and
execute is again and again.

Normally for distributed compilations, one uses distcc or maybe the
buildbot already mentioned.. And normally, when you want to execute a
specific command on a system, you compile it once, and only send the
binary to the machines that should execute it.
