OK.... so xetex found the font, but xdvipdfmx wasn't happy.

This is caused by a bug in the current TeX i-Package (more  
specifically, in the gtamacfonts part that provides support in pdftex  
for some Mac OS X fonts). It adds invalid entries to the dvipdfm (and  
dvips) font map files, though it was only intended to work with pdftex.

I've recently reported this to Gerben, so I hope there will be a fix  
soon. Meanwhile, you can edit dvipdfm.map and manually remove (or  
comment out) the offending line:

%%% BAD LINE %%% HoeflerTextOrnaments hoeflertextornaments  

It's likely to be the first (non-comment) line in the file, if you  
have a fairly typical selection of fonts; and indeed, in your case  
it's line 6, after the initial 5 comment lines.
