Given the absence of the driver file dvipdfmx.def in the current TeX  
distributions (see the thread "[OS X TeX] TeXniscope problems after  
LaTeX upgrade" starting on 4 May on the OS X TeX list <http:// 
thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx/16705/focus=16705>), and the  
fact that this driver is significantly different from dvipdfm.def,  
should XeTeX users retrieve it from <http://ftp.ktug.or.kr/KTUG/ 
dvipdfmx/contrib/latex/>, install it then use the [dvipdfmx] option?
