I've posted a new version of XeTeX in the usual places. This version 
includes several bug-fixes, as well as a first effort at PDF hyperlink 
support. In XeLaTeX, it should now work to say
in order to generate bookmarks and links.

See <http://scripts.sil.org/xetex> for information and downloads, as 

Main changes in this release:
  - fixed occasional "broken pipe" bug that a couple of people have 
  - fixed scaling of non-72dpi images used with \XeTeXpicfile
  - fixed quoting of \fontname (so LaTeX font substitution works)
  - search standard paths for graphics files in \XeTeXpicfile, 
  - support for generating bookmarks and links in PDF files, e.g. using 
the LaTeX hyperref package (specify the dvipdfm option to hyperref to 
make this work)
  - support for dvipdfm-style "color" \specials as an alternative to 
XeTeX's "x:textcolor" and "x:rulecolor"
