This could come from XeTeX trying to convert Latin Modern fonts in  
PostScript Type 1 format to OpenType format – which might have failed  
leading to the message cited below:

You can check in /Library/Caches/Type1-sfnt-fonts what XeTeX was able  
to convert when.

The cure would be to install the OpenType versions of the Latin  
Modern fonts in one of the Mac OS X font folders, for example in / 
Library/Fonts, best in its own sub-folder. For this purpose the gwTeX  
distribution had a routine to pack the different sets of Latin Modern  
fonts into three font files in Apple's DFONT format ...

OTOH: there are a lot of OTF versions of TeX fonts freely available  
(http://tug.org/fonts/), and none gets installed, yet?
