I am trying to build the latest of everything (xetex, xelatex, and  
anything else that is installed by the XeTeX installer for OS X) for  
Gerben's new TeXLive based i-Package which is located at /usr/local/ 

Will I have to edit the build-xetex script to use the correct path?

Here is what I get at the end without setting a new install path.

./build-xetex: line 30: cd: Work/texk/web2c: No such file or directory
./build-xetex: line 35: cd: Work/texk/xdv2pdf: No such file or directory
ls: Work/texk/web2c/xetex: No such file or directory
ls: Work/texk/xdv2pdf/T1Wrap: No such file or directory
ls: Work/texk/xdv2pdf/xdv2pdf: No such file or directory

It also has

checking host system type... i686-apple-darwin8.8.1
checking target system type... i686-apple-darwin8.8.1
checking build system type... i686-apple-darwin8.8.1

while the folder in bin from Gerben is i386-apple-darwin8.8.1

When I try to run install-xetex I get

[11/26/06|02:55 PM]jonb at DeltaFlyer:~/Downloads/root >  sudo install- 
### error: xetex binary has not been built

Unhappiness :-(
