Why Debian? I meant it is more a xetex problem so I would add a bug
report there.

You don't need the full path. This here works fine for me (arial is
a system font and the other is in the texmf tree):

\font\test="[arial.ttf]:color=FF0000;mapping=tex-text" at 20pt 
alblbl --- 

\font\test="[texgyrecursor-regular.otf]:color=00FF00" at 20pt
alblbl ---

But you won't be able to use font options like /GR (at least that's
what xetexref says).
