When using the i-Installer to install XeTeX on an Intel Mac (MacBook  
Pro) I got the following error:

   XeTeX cannot be configured because fmtutil has not been installed  

This is due to the paths used in the xetex.configure script.  The  
paths includes


but this should be


on an Intel Mac.  A workaround is to install both the ppc and i386  
binaries of TeX and put the .../bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current path  
last in your PATH.  xetex (and friends) installed here will work OK  
on an Intel Mac.
