After posting my success message, I ran into more problems using pgf and configuring beamer. I was able to make xelatex produce landscape slides with beamer finally (using the -papersize=landscape option on the CL, but decided to wait some weeks (months?) before giving the combination a fifth try.

In principle, the following code produced some output (which I send to you off-list):

\documentclass[landscape]{beamer} 
\setlength{\unitlength}{1mm}

\DeclareFontFamily{U}{verdana}{}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{verdana}{m}{n}%
     {<-> "Verdana"}{}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{verdana}{m}{it}%
     {<-> "Verdana\space Italic"}{}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{verdana}{bx}{n}%
     {<-> "Verdana\space Bold"}{}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{verdana}{b}{n}%
     {<-> ssub * verdana/bx/n}{}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{verdana}{bx}{it}%
     {<-> "Verdana\space Bold\space Italic"}{}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{verdana}{b}{it}%
     {<-> ssub * verdana/bx/it}{}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{verdana}{m}{sc}%
     {<-> "Verdana:Letter\space Case=Small\space Caps"}{}
\renewcommand{\encodingdefault}{U}
\renewcommand{\sfdefault}{verdana}

\usepackage[english,ngerman]{babel}

\mode<presentation>
\beamersetleftmargin{0cm}
\beamertemplatesolidbackgroundcolor{white}

\useframetitletemplate{
    \colorbox{gray!30!white}{%
        \begin{picture}(297,30)
            \raisebox{5mm}{\hspace{3mm}\textbf{\LARGE \insertframetitle}\hfill}
            \put(230,0){\includegraphics{247realmedia.pdf}}
        \end{picture}
    }
}
\useheadtemplate{}
\usefoottemplate{}

\begin{document}

\frame{%
\frametitle{RealMedia}
Graphic file follows\\
\includegraphics{247realmedia.pdf}

Text comes here.
}

\end{document} 

Best,

Jan
