Indeed! And one customisation could have been to comment XeTeX related lines copied from somewhere which made tlmgr remove or comment the lines in the generated fmtutil.cnf.

I thought you would check the contents of /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-var/web2c/fmtutil.cnf to see whether XeTeX related formats are still mentioned there. One option is to simply run

	fmtutil-sys --listcfg

No sudo is necessary, it's a read-only process. You can compare the output with that of

	fmtutil --listcfg

When they're different, then you have private FMTs and you need to run

	fmtutil --byengine xetex

or a general

	fmtutil --refresh

The options fmtutil or fmtutil-sys know can be found be found by running

	fmtutil --help
