Xen Server Installation on CentOS6...?

Hello Folks,
Anyone know about the support possibilities of Xenserver(open source) on CentOS6..?
As I Googled and read alot of forums, but no luck. I have tried the followings.
OS: CentOS6
Kernel: 2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.x86_64
Arch: x86_64

When tried to install XenServer from source.
make xen
make tools
make stubdom

#make tools
make[3]: *** [check-build] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/root/xen-4.0-testing.hg/tools/check'
make[2]: *** [subdir-install-check] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/xen-4.0-testing.hg/tools'
make[1]: *** [subdirs-install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/xen-4.0-testing.hg/tools'
make: *** [install-tools] Error 2

Added the file "/etc/yum.repos.d/XEN4.1.1_x86_64.repo" with the following lines.
name=RHEL/CentOS-$releasever - GITCO XEN4.1.1

After that, executed
#yum install xen virt-manager kernel-xen
But it fails.

Any clue..?

EL/CentOS 6 Xen

Hypervisor support for Xen is not available for RHEL6 variants, including CentOS 6. Only Kvm hypervisors are supported.

while KVM is definitely preferable over Xen (not trying to start a flame, but it's native to RHEL6 after all), there have been messages about a custom port available on the centos-virt mailing lists.

Definitely not something I'd be willing to put anywhere near production, but might be fun to play with
