Forget about that. By default XeTeX never stops at producing an XDV  
file, and always converts it automatically to PDF format, using  
either xdv2pd for xdvipdfmx. As a result, and except when asked for  
explicitly by the user, no XDV file is ever left lying around, only  
PDF files. Hence, there is little interest in having a stand-alone  
XDV viewer.

Probably I should refrain from posting on Sunday nights ;-)
