Taking code from 'knuth.drv' into 'cwebmac.tex' (see attached file)
works as follows for different approaches:

(0) cweave common.w

# Run TeX twice to make common.toc available for second round:

(1a) tex common.tex; tex common.tex; dvipdfm coomon

     PDF without active links; toc at end

(1b) tex "\let\pdf+\input common"; \
     tex "\let\pdf+\input common"; \
     dvipdfm common

     PDF with clickable link; toc at end

(1c) pdftex common; pdftex common

     PDF with clickable links; toc at front

(1d) xetex common; xetex common

     PDF without clickable links; toc at front

(1e) xetex "\let\pdf+\input common"; \
     xetex "\let\pdf+\input common"

     PDF with clickable links; toc at front

Pick your preferred variant (1a) .. (1e).

Good luck,
