The message "Output file removed" comes from xdvipdfmx when it  
believes something is wrong (as it doesn't want to leave you with a  
corrupt/incomplete PDF that might do bad things when you try to view  

To figure out what's going wrong, try removing the -q (quiet) option  
from xdvipdfmx in your engine, and adding -v or even -vv (verbose)  
instead; that way we'll find out a bit more of what it thinks it's  

Alternatively, go to the Terminal and run the processes separately:

$ xetex -no-pdf testfile.tex
This is XeTeX....
Output written on testfile.xdv...

$ xdvipdfmx -E -vv testfile.xdv
(...various output, mainly related to fonts...)
