[XeTeX] graphics inclusion

Sorry, you're right that that error on the terminal came via another
line of troubleshooting (when using the \XeTeXpdffile command, not with
\includegraphics). Everything else is as I mentioned, though: using
xelatex, a blank space in the output file (and with latex an empty box)
instead of the graphic. Are there any special options I should be
calling with the latex/xelatex commands? Thanks as always for the help!
