[OS X TeX] Configuring TeXShop to use XeLaTeX instead of pdfLaTeX

I think I need to switch from pdfLaTeX to XeLaTeX, to avoid various patches required, e.g., between babel and some other packages (including cleveref).

For the TeXShop pdflatexmk engine, in my document source directory I use the following platexmkrc:

	$makeindex = "makeindex -s %R.ist %O -o %D %S”;

and the following latexmkrc:

	# latexmkrc
	# Custom dependency and function for nomencl package
	add_cus_dep('nlo', 'nls', 0, 'makenlo2nls'); 
		 sub makenlo2nls { 
			 system("makeindex -s nomencl.ist -o '$_[0]'.nls '$_[0]'.nlo"); 

Do these need to be modified in any way, or do I need some kind of alternative files, so as to allow using the xelatexmk engine?
