It seems Xen on FreeBSD is dead or forgotten.
1 year ago Kip Macy anounces Xen support in 6.1, but it is still not there.
Yuan Jue was working on Xen as Google Summer Of Code 2006 with this summary:
"Successfully got a domU kernel usable for installation. dom0 support 
still in progress. Kip and Yuan Jue are continuing to work together on 
this project after the official end of SoC."

But half a year later, Xen is still not availabel on FreeBSD :(
