[XeTeX] Trying to build microtype-aware xetex

I haven't had to do this in quite some time, so I'm a bit rusty. I had a microtype-compatible version of xetex installed and then updated my environment with TLU which apparently clobbered my xetex.

So now I'm trying to rebuild xetex, but I'm getting an error (Mac OS X, 10.7.1, xcode 4.1.1):

/Users/smoye/microxetex/texk/web2c/xetexdir/XeTeXLayoutInterface.cpp: In function ‘int GetFontCharRange_AAT(OpaqueATSUStyle*, int)’:
/Users/smoye/microxetex/texk/web2c/xetexdir/XeTeXLayoutInterface.cpp:867: error: ‘ATSUGetAttribute’ was not declared in this scope
/Users/smoye/microxetex/texk/web2c/xetexdir/XeTeXLayoutInterface.cpp:869: error: ‘FMGetATSFontRefFromFont’ was not declared in this scope
make: *** [libxetex_a-XeTeXLayoutInterface.o] Error 1
+ ls -l /Users/smoye/microxetex/build-xetex/texk/web2c/xetex
ls: /Users/smoye/microxetex/build-xetex/texk/web2c/xetex: No such file or directory

I did 'svn up' prior to trying run build-xetex.sh. What are the current directions for building xetex, and where can I find them?
