    Illegal unit of measure (pt inserted).
    Package pdftex.def Warning: Option `bb' does not make sense,

Need to see the whole document, and the tex command line that latexit is

Since it works with texshop and not with latexit, I kind of surmise that
the latexit run is finding different files, for whatever reason.

Because xelatex needs to act "as if" it were pdftex.  That geometry.cfg
file is a no-op when not running xelatex.
