Hi Nicholas,

By no mean a XeTeX expert, I have recently had XeTeX installed on
Panther; I had the same error message when I hacked the installer
package -- which I ended up manually install the files -- to play nicely
with my tetex installation from darwinport. One point that might have
biten you:

 1. Check texmf.cnf (mine lives in /usr/local/share/texmf/web2c) that
    you have OTFFONTS = .;$TEXMF/fonts/otf// .

My question to developper is that whether kpsewhich show *.otf; mine does
