Do I need to just compile the xetex sources from the svn, or do I
also need to get a new checkout of xdvipdfmx?
I grabbed the svn sources and tried to build with the build-xetex
script, but that fails with:
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
Is there any brief readme for compiling xetex from SVN on OS X? Do I
need to get some external dependencies like we3b2c and xdv2pdf manually?
Also, can I run xetex from the build dir (or install it into a
sandbox) and yet have it find the rest of my tex install? Not sure if
I want to overwrite my current xetex with the bleeding-edge checkout
Sorry for such newbish questions, but I haven't been able to figure
this all out.
