Did you add this line, from a message "Rép : [OS X TeX] New to the  
list with a cocktail of questions on how to migrate from Textures" by  
Jonathan Kew to the OS X TeX list on 5 February:

\XeTeXinputencoding "macintosh"

This should work provided you did use Mac OS Roman encoding in  
your .tex file (as I assume from your call to 8bitdefscopy.tex).

In the long run, it would probably be better to convert your source  
files to the UTF-8 encoding.
