Of course there is, otherwise the "xm" tools wouldn't be working. It's
just that you don't have a /usr/lib/xen as it should (as I said, you
should create one linking to /etc/alternatives/xen-default that will
itself link to /usr/lib/xen-3.2.1). By the way, I should have write:

cd /usr/lib/python-support
ln -s /usr/lib/xen/lib/python/xen xen
