You can find the source code of Will Robertson's XeTeX reference
guide in <762E632F-E255-4BC5-9894-C768312E052E at gmail.com> (posted at

the documentclass: 12pt.

Searching for "driver" in xetexref.log results in:

chris at lotus:/tmp$ grep -ni driver xetexref.log

chris at lotus:/tmp$ grep -i hyperref.cfg xetexref.log
File: hyperref.cfg 2002/06/06 v1.2 hyperref configuration of TeXLive
and teTeX
chris at lotus:/tmp$ kpsewhich hyperref.cfg
chris at lotus:/tmp$ head -2 `kpsewhich hyperref.cfg`
  [2006/06/07 v1.2b hyperref configuration of XeTeX]
