Which requires linux-xen:
(exists only for i386)

That's why I am trying to package-build an amd64 flavour.
It's a great opportunity that the package source is available, I just 
have to try to compile it.

If I "apt-get source linux-xen", it retrieves the kernel's source 
package. Then, when I try to build on my amd64 flavour (1), many 
packages are created, but not the -xen I want.

That's were I need help.

(1) "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot"
