With respect to this, one can use Pacifist to show what was installed.

xdv2pdf, xetex to /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current
and soft links to xeinitex and xevirtex (both to xetex)

the usual cmb10.otf through msbm7.otf and in between to  

xetex.pool and xetex.xfmt to /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c
and a softlink from plain.xfmt to xetex.xfmt

That's all it claims to install.

Please see <http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/> for list
guidelines, information, and LaTeX/TeX resources.
