It seems that something about the odokai.ttf font is triggering a bug
in xdvipdfmx. I'll see if I can get hold of that font to reproduce
Have you tried specifying other truetype or opentype fonts, to see
whether the failure is specific to this font, or possibly some more
general configuration or installation issue?

xdv2pdf exists only on Mac OS X, so xdvipdfmx is the correct (and
only) driver option.
