[XeTeX] Building a XeLaTeX format

I would like to test some hyphenation patterns with XeLaTeX (so that I can use polyglossia).
When I try to compile the xelatex format by

xetex -ini -etex xelatex.ini

I get a bunch of error messages

! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \UnicodeEncodingName 
l.6994 ...{\textzerooldstyle} \UnicodeEncodingName
! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \UnicodeEncodingName 
l.6994 ...{\textzerooldstyle} \UnicodeEncodingName

When I continue the format is built nevertheless, but then when I try to use it I get

(/usr/local/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/fontenc.sty (/usr/local/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/tulmr.fd
! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> <-5.5>UnicodeFontFile 
                                 {lmroman5-regular}{UnicodeFontTeXLigatures ...
l.60    }{}
(many lines)
! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> ...tTeXLigatures }<11->UnicodeFontFile 
l.93    }{}
(That makes 100 errors; please try again.)
No pages of output.
Transcript written on test.log.
What is the recipe to create a personalized xelatex.fmt?

Thanks in advance,

...es funkeln aus der Tiefe manchmal seine Töne;
wer sie hört, spürt ein Geheimnis walten, sieht es fliehen, wünscht es festzuhalten,
brennt vor Heimweh. Denn er ahnt das Schöne.     (Hermann Hesse)
