The xelatex.xfmt file should be in /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/
(there is a link to /usr/local/teTeX/, called teTeX, in /Library/). If it
isn't there try to find where it is and move it there. If it doesn't exist
it sounds like the XeTeX package was loaded before redoing the TeX package
or it didn't go through the configuration stage.

Good Luck,
