Not quite what you are asking but if you look in xen/Config.mk you'll
see some variables which point to the URL for various subsidiary git
trees, you can override those into local paths if you want.

I think you can unzip a qemu tarball into tools, but I'm not sure how
that works.

I think so? If it is cloned then this will be a link to
qemu-xen-dir-remote, otherwise it is used as is.
