If you go to the directory where you'll find "xetex-examples.pdf", 
you'll find the file called "xetex-examples.tex" (among many others). It 
seems probable that another font is missing on your system: the .tex 
file calls for a font name "Nakula". I don't have it here, but I suppose 
you could substitute another Devanagari font (on Mac, maybe Devanagari MT?).

Hope that helps.
