I say your post yesterday and to I compiled X11R7.2 up to the libs only and tried Xen again and still had the same result. Do I need to go further and compile more of X11? I am having a hard time understanding why even the libs are needed and why I can't just get the kernels and tools I need without them? Can anyone shed some light on why this is?
Because unless you want to spend quite a lot of time reverse engineering the Xen installer to exclude the X-based utilities, like support for the VNC consoles, it's probably not worth the pain.

This is where a managed software system like deb or RPM has an advantage: the components like libraries and include files are already segmented out for you, to support exactly this sort of requirement.
