One reason can be that the hyperref package does not support XeTeX's  
default output driver on Mac OS X, xdv2pdf. Instead you would need to  
process the XDV output with xdvipdfmx:

	xelatex -output-driver=xdvipdfmx

There is also a Perl script, xdv2pdf_mergemarks, for example in /usr/ 
It's used from inside xdv2pdf.
