As I'm trying to use xetex with TeXShop, on Macos10.3.3,
and after configuring TeXShop to this purpose, in accordance with


I get the following error message :

This is XeTeXk, Version 3.14159-2.1-0.7 (Web2C 7.5.2)
  %&-line parsing enabled.
kpathsea: Running mktexfmt xetex.xfmt
fmtutil: no info for format `xetex'.
I can't find the format file `xetex.xfmt'!

xetex was installed with G. Wierda's i-Installer

I have some lines in =20
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/fmtutil.cnf :

# XeTeX formats
xetex		xetex		-		*xetex.ini
xelatex		xetex		language.dat	*xelatex.ini

and also a xetex.pool in /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/, =20
which I don't know about.

I also get a similar message with iTeXMac.

Any help would be appreciated.
