This message is specifically from xdv2pdf....

...and can't occur with xdvipdfmx (which would behave differently if  
a font cannot be found).

Not in xdv2pdf, but they are in xdvipdfmx. The error above indicates  
that you were not successfully calling that driver; I'm not sure why  
this would be.

You could try running xetex and xdvipdfmx as two separate steps, just  
to make really sure:

   xelatex -no-pdf myfile.tex
   xdvipdfmx -E myfile.xd

Oh, one possible problem for xdvipdfmx would be if your dvipdfm.map  
has a "bad" entry for HoeflerTextOrnaments, created (erroneously) by  
the gtamacfonts package that's included in the TeX i-Package. If you  
get an error message about this, simply comment out the line in  
the .map file.
