Actually, building from source by following the instructions at


(which just happen to be for xdvipdfmx, by the way), I can confirm the commit fixes the problem:

% xelatex -no-pdf test-xetex.tex
Output written on test-xetex.xdv (1 page, 708 bytes).
Transcript written on test-xetex.log.

% xdvipdfmx test-xetex.xdv
test-xetex.xdv -> test-xetex.pdf
[1zsh: segmentation fault  xdvipdfmx test-xetex.xdv

% TEXMFROOT=/usr/local/texlive/2024 TEXMFCNF=$TEXMFROOT/texmf-dist/web2c ~/Desktop/Test/TeXLive/tl-20240305/Work/texk/dvipdfm-x/xdvipdfmx test-xetex.xdv
test-xetex.xdv -> test-xetex.pdf
29238 bytes written

The above on macOS Sonoma 14.4 RC with compiler Xcode 15.3 RC.
