First of all this kind of question should to go xen-users mailinglist..

Anyway: This issue is not directly related to *Xen*. The issue is in 
(libvirt/virt-install is not part of Xen tree).

libvirt needs to be compiled for the version of Xen you're running.
So when you replace and install Xen from source, you need to recompile libvirt 
for the new Xen version.

After libvirt rebuild it should work.
