I *think* that most, if not all, tools will honour: DESTDIR=foo make 

Don't worry about not coming up with that: the Xen makefiles are not exactly 
easy to read :-)  I've spent lots of time trying to figure out what they're 

The alternative would be to do something like "make dist-tools" which will 
install all the tools into dist/install, and you can then use the install.sh 
script too initiate an install on the destination machine.  I'm not sure if 
you can set alternate install paths with that - you can't set DESTDIR 
meaningfully.  But for a "normal" install, the resulting tree should be OK.
