(Seemingly) endless try-and-error resulted in this preamble that does
not lead to the segmentation fault with MacTex 2008 Basic when the
italic shape of Hoefler is invoked in the headings with scrpage2:

%%%%%%%%
\documentclass[a4paper]{scrartcl}

\usepackage{xltxtra}

\setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Hoefler Text}

\newfontface\unfancy
[Contextuals=
{NoWordInitial,NoWordFinal,NoLineInitial,NoLineFinal,NoInner}]
{Hoefler Text Italic}
\usepackage{scrpage2}
\cfoot{\pagemark}

\begin{document}
blabla
\end{document}
%%%%%%%%%%

it still seems weird that a segmentation fault happens when a shape
of Hoefler is invoked in the header that works perfectly fine in the
document's body. Even though my imminent problem is now solved I
wonder what is responsible for this.

Thanks to all who helped here.
