It seems \XeTeXdefaultencoding causes problems with some  
distributions, as was recently discussed. Besides you did not choose  
any font. This slightly modified version of your test file works fine  
on my Mac:

%\XeTeXdefaultencoding utf-8
\setmainfont{Lucida Grande}

Typeset with XeLaTex

Best wishes,
