Agreed. I think /usr/lib/xen/etc/qemu/ is better than e.g. /etc/xen/qemu
since that might give the impression of affecting the system qemu when
used with Xen.

I think both target-86_64.conf and qemu-bridge-helper both don't do very
much in a Xen system anyway.

I agree.

With your change to --prefix I suspect that --libdir and --includedir
aren't needed, but there's no harm in passing them I suppose.
