Is 'make menuconfig' supposed to work?

I've been trying to get started cross-compiling the latest source code
referenced here: http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/XenARM#Xen-ARM_source using
the instructions here:
http://downloads.xen.org/Wiki/XenARM/Secure_Xen_on_ARM_User_Guide_v1_1.pdf.
All the instructions say you have to do is 'make menuconfig' to start
configuring the xen-arm kernel, but that doesn't seem to work. It
fails with the following error...

% make menuconfig
make -C xen menuconfig
make[1]: Entering directory `~/xen-arm/xen'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `menuconfig'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `~/xen-arm/xen'
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2

...which is correct in that the makefile in that sub-directory doesn't
have any information about how to build 'menuconfig'. I noted
elsewhere in the archives a suggestion to roll your own .config file
from scratch (http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-arm/2011-11/msg00003.html),
which is fine, but I need to know where I can find a list of possible
options to put in this config file if 'menuconfig' isn't really
intended to be working right now. Thanks!

Hi Xen-ARM,

With respect to Jason Sullivan's mail,

I've been trying to get started cross-compiling the latest source code

Actually the user guide is intended for ARM926E arch, for i.MX21.
The Source code is also different.
You have not mentioned which board you would be using xen to get
virtualization.

Find a relative source code for your board and you can continue to work on
with.

This particular config is for tegra 250, If you intend to use this, you can
use it as well.

This is actually an ARM 7-based software simulator (similar enough to
QEMU that I don't have to hack too much, I'm hoping).

So this means I should check out the git repository? I don't see a
location for that on the main page: http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/XenARM

Thanks!
