In the first case first

	File: dvipdfm.def 1999/9/6 vx.x Driver-dependant file

is loaded, then

	File: xetex.def 2006/08/10 v0.92 LaTeX color/graphics driver for  
XeTeX (RRM, mo d. JK)

is loaded. In the latter case only xetex.def is loaded.

Until recently I was using \usepackage[dvipdfm]{graphicx}. Since I  
looked into the recent version of xetex.def I think I could easily use


as with pdfTeX. Xetex.def seems to contain what dvipdfm.def provides.
