I know two packages aimed to substitute/extend pstricks for using in 
non-postscript tex. One is pgf which defines its own commands instead 
of pstricks for produce directly pdf output. The other is pdftricks 
which is a kind of wrapper for pstricks, It uses \write18 (or 
--shell-escape). Both are working with pdfelatex for my, neither is 
working with xetex. While I do not get any error/warning I could 
understand from pgf, running pdftricks results in "no \write18 
capability", although I enable 'xetex --shell-escape' via the TeXShop
