Are you sure the -shell-escape is necessary? My "XeLaTeX +  
xdvipdfmx.engine" contains:

set path= ($path /usr/texbin /usr/local/bin)
xelatex -output-driver="xdvipdfmx -q -E" "$1"

The -q and -E options were suggested by Jonathan Kew in an older  
post. The -q means IIRC run silently, and -E means, according to  
"xdvipdfmx -h", always try to embed fonts.
