[XeTeX] Broken XeTeX

I just add an explanation. XeTeX builds a xdv file in memory and sends
it via a pipe to xdvipdfmx. If xdvipdfmx disappears from your
computer, you get this error message It is sufficient to get just
xdvipdfmx.exe unless other files disappeared too.

As a side note, I successfully use epubreader plugin for firefox,
there is nothing to install in a special way and it is platform
independent and free.
