With all honesty, I can't see why would anyone want to put development
tools on the Dom0 in the first place.  Actually, why would you run any
services (besides maybe SSH) there?  

I run my Dom0's as minimal as possible.  If there is a need to compile
anything I do it on a separate machine or in a DomU configured
specifically for development.
