I am not sure about its current support in XeLaTeX, it might work both
in TeX Live and MiKTeX. Anyway, as the "ps" in the package name says,
PostScript is requred. It cannot in principle work in pdftex. You have
to create dvi, then use dvips and finally convert ps to pdf. I am not
sure whether dvipdfm can convert it directly from dvi to pdf.
