I've never installed TeX from either DarwinPorts or Fink (you seem to  
have the paths for both, /opt/local/bin for DarwinPorts and /sw/bin  
for Fink). But I got the impression from what I read that Fink  
installs a placeholder, system-tetex, pointing to gwteX. I suspect  
this placeholder, or the various other TeX elements in Fink, have not  
yet been updated to reflect the new symlink /usr/texbin, and point  
instead to hardwired locations like /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc- 

However that doesn't explain why your problem is with XeTeX only.  
Maybe the instructions for installing XeTeX for Fink, at <http:// 
site_id=nrsi&item_id=xetex_fink>, would indicate where the problem  
can lie. For example, do you have a ~/.texmf-config or ~/.texmf-var?
