I normally use the 64-bit version, but it doesn't make any difference. If I switch to the 32-bit
universal distribution (which can be done easily thanks to Dick's TeX Distribution prefpane), the result is the same. I actually just did an install if TL2011 pretest on a different machine, and the problem persists.

I have TL2011 pretest installed on an iMac and on a MacBookPro. Both are Intel, both are 64bit, both run 10.6.7. On both systems, TL2011 runs fine except for xindy which doesn't work neither with the 64bit or 32bit distribution. It works if I switch back to TL2010.
