\newXeTeXintercharclass is a rather new command which is defined in
xelatex.ini and xetex.ini (and so is part of the xelatex and the
xetex format). The newest xe(la)tex.ini's haven't yet found the way
in all tex-systems (miktex is missing them too). You can probably
find them in one of the tex live 2009 packages or try these one:

Move them in a local root where they are found before the normal
one, call texhash and regenerate the xelatex/xetex format.
