I've got results with OVMF from source on Centos 7, and have a shiny new C7 VM installed on top of EFI, using
the compiled ovmf.bin

However Debian attempts with xen 4.6 are failing either with

1)    ./configure --enable-ovmf
2)    ./configure --with-system-ovmf=/usr/share/ovmf/OVMF.fd

I'm not sure if the 2nd version is correct. I used the path to the ovmf blob from repo
apt-get install ovmf

When the source build goes off, what does Xen do with that path? Does it write it into config or does
the build actually try to hook a blob from that path?

Is the --with-system-ovmf flag always required even when tools/firmware/ovmf-dir/Makefile is run?
