I just finished doing this.

First, if it's possible, I'd suggest using svn to get the latest,  
greatest version.

svn checkout http://scripts.sil.org/svn-public/xetex/TRUNK xetex

Second, open up a terminal window, navigate to the source directory  
and type



sudo ./install-xetex

and provide your admin password when requested.
