It turns out, after installing XeTeX 0.9, that the directory 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/xetex/ does not contain the 
required files:


Hence the error message you're getting.

Instead there's now in this directory the single file:


which is just a new name for xplain.tex.

I noticed this by making a copy of texmf.local corresponding to XeTeX 
0.88, before installing 0.9. Generally the changes in support files 
are, directory-wise, inside texmf.local:

fonts/misc -> fonts/xetex
fonts/otf  deleted
tex/xetex  unchanged
xetex/perl -> scripts/perl

which is all the better for TDS-compliance.
