when I use TexLive 2011 with a generic XeLaTeX template with \usepackage{microtype} I get the following log:

This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.3-0.9997.5 (TeX Live 2011)

Package microtype Warning: You don't seem to be using pdftex.
(microtype)                `microtype' only works with pdftex.
(microtype)                Try running `pdflatex' instead of `xelatex'.

So what to do? This is on OSX 10.6.
