The sequence referenced there works also on Mac OS X, after  
downloading the latest tarball from <http://scripts.sil.org/svn- 
public/xetex/TRUNK> then cd'ing in Terminal to the TRUNK directory:

	sh build-xetex
	sudo sh install-xetex

The script build-xetex builds the 3 programs xetex, xdv2pdf and  
T1Wrap, and then the script install-xetex installs them (together  
with the script xdv2pdf_mergemarks) at the appropriate places inside  
the teTeX tree, updates the file name database ls-R then creates the  
formats xetex.fmt and xelatex.fmt.

Works fine here, I just tried the procedure again to see how 0.992  
was performing with respect to \XeTeXuseglyphmetrics with the changed  
default value 1. Only problem was, the fan of my 1 GHz 17" PowerBook  
G4 has been spinning like mad during most of the compilation.
