No, not this script, but runConfigure.sh! This one has the variables  
PREFIX and DATADIR preset with the teTeX values which need to be  
adapted to your recent layout.

I think that the following errors come from the above mistakes.

I have no idea whether this difference makes a difference – just try  
to compile again with the fixed runConfigure.sh script, i.e. again by  
invoking 'sh build-xetex'! Later we might see more ...
