I'd try

xetex -ini "&xetex" "*dumptest.tex"

(you shouldn't need the sudo if you're doing this in your home directory)
where the * tells xetex to use extended mode and must be protected from the
shell by the double quotes or it will get gobbled up.

The use the format I'd use

xetex -xfmt=dumptest xetexfile after putting it in the right place (you kow
how to do that) and doing a ``sudo texhash'' so kpsewhich knows how to find

I think that's it.

Good Luck,
