thanks for your quick reply, I was talking about tetex, not xetex,  
sorry for the typo.

I CC'd the fink package maintainer of tetex. Dave, you might be  
interested. If not, sorry for the noise.

Ok, here come the relevant parts of /sw/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf.  
Apparently, it got more complicated with tetex-3.0:

% TEXMFSYSVAR, where texconfig-sys stores variable runtime data.
% With teTeX-3.0 or later, this must be set.
% For sharing this tree with $TEXMFMAIN:
% For using a separate tree:
%   TEXMFSYSVAR = /sw/share/texmf-var
TEXMFSYSVAR = /sw/var/lib/texmf


% Now, list all the texmf trees. If you have multiple trees you can
% use shell brace notation, like this:
% The braces are necessary.
% For texconfig to work properly, TEXMFCONGIG and TEXMFVAR should be  
% explicitly and before all other trees.


% Dvips' config.* files (this name should not start with `TEX'!).

Seems as if all the expansion is done right,  
/sw/var/lib/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/updmap/psfonts.map might be a valid

Me neither, sorry for the typo ;) I upgrade tetex.

Just to be sure, I searched the fink package database,  
http://fink.sourceforge.net/pdb/search.php?summary=xetex -- I don't  
think there is a fink package of xetex.

I upgraded tetex (!) using fink. And afterwards used the XeTeX.pkg  
installer (XeTeX_094a.dmg) to install xetex.
