I am using the XeTex typesetting system on a Macintosh running Snow Leopard. I would like it to produce a PDF/X file. Is this possible? I am mainly concerned with ensuring the fonts are embedded.

Yes, you should be able to, using the PDFX package. But you should realize that there is much more to the PDF/X spec than just embedding fonts. The PDFX package can be had here: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/pdfx/
Otherwise, produce your PDF with embedded fonts, then try and print the PDF to another PDF using OS X's print dialog, and save as PDF/X-3.
