After trial-and-error (given I'm not used to building software), the  
following seemed to work, after cd'ing to the directory xetex-0.991:

chmod +x build-xetex
chmod +x install-xetex
sudo ./install-xetex

It seems the second script (install-xetex) takes care of building the  
xetex and xelatex formats, and of copying these formats together with  
the binaries xetex, xdv2pdf and T1Wrap at the appropriate places in  
the gwTeX tree.

The "XeTeX for Linux" page -- of course I only thought of looking at  
it afterwards -- contains slightly different instructions:

sh build-xetex
sudo sh install-xetex

I imagine these are equivalent to the above.
