not shure - does most of of my mind, but you may follow:

 - Gentoo hardened Howto (select hardened profile and set hardened USE flags)

on older systems the CFLAG "-mno-tls-direct-seg-refs " was required - not 
shure if it is still requorted, but at least could set without problems on 
newer machines.

 - the newer hardened kernels still includes all the stuff you need for xen 
from kernel side

 - add "xen" to your USE flags (and possibly other you may find i.e. on app-
emulation/xen - depending from your needs - i.e. "hvm", "pygrub", "qemu", 
"screen" etc.)

 - set up xen by:

emerge -v app-emulation/xen app-emulation/xen-tools

configure xen as usual.

hth and good luck.
