First of all, there's unmodified_drivers/linux-2.6/README

   NB. You can override paths to Xen sources and a (stub) XenLinux
       build tree via the XEN and XL environment variable.

your output indicates it expects to find XenLinux in
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/xen-3.3.1/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg. Is it there?

On Xen 3.4.0, when downloading
http://bits.xensource.com/oss-xen/release/3.4.0/xen-3.4.0.tar.gz you
have to create a symlink from linux-2.6.18 to linux-2.6.18-xen.hg.
Same thing might apply for 3.3.1.
