Ok, the following TeXShop engine also reads $PROJECTDIR/latexmkrc.

I assume you're using TeXShop to run the engine so I'd use 

$pdflatex = 'xelatex -synctex=-1  --file-line-error %O %S';

in your $PROJECTDIR/latexmkrc file since TeXShop uses that information to find the file for the error in the log file.

You were talking about latex and I see you want to use xelatex. Try the xelatexmk engine along with a platexmkrc file and see if that works for you

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
