It was contained formerly in /usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/tex/ 
generic/pstricks/xdvipdfmx.con, my TeX Collection 2009 DVD has this  
file in /Volumes/TeXCol2009/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/generic/pstricks  
and also in /Volumes/TeXCol2009/ctan/graphics/pstricks/base.zip. A

	tlmgr search --file xdvipdfmx.con

returns nothing, so xdvipdfmx.con does not get installed. The fault is  

tlmgr show --list xetex-pstricks
	package:     xetex-pstricks
	category:    Package
	shortdesc:   Running PStricks under XeTeX.
	longdesc:    The package provides an indirection scheme for XeTeX to  
use the pstricks xdvipdfmx.con configuration file, so that XeTeX  
documents will load it in preference to the standard pstricks.con  
configuration file. With this configuration, many PSTricks features  
can be used in xelatex or plain xetex documents.

In the long description of this package xdvipdfmx.con is mentioned but  
not included.

The file is *not* in the XeTeX sources. It is still the same as in TL
