you'd have to change the path setting as well, afaik. In my mail from  
I included a complete bash script. That should get you started. The set  
can be added here as well for debugging.


WD=`dirname "$1"`
FN=`basename "$1"`
echo "Dir=$WD; Filename=$FN"
cd "$WD"
xetex -xfmt=XGenealogue -papersize=14in,8.5in "$FN"
# end of script.

(in short: you shouldn't want to know the equivalent in tcsh).
