Does this require any sort of switches while running XeLaTeX?

Uh I found it in xelatex --help. The option switch is -no-pdf. – Ramaprakasha Dec 13 '12 at 9:40
--no-pdf gives xdv (an extended dvi). I don't know a driver to get ps from there. dvips will have problems with the fonts. – Ulrike Fischer Dec 13 '12 at 10:03

After you get the PDF output, you can use pdftops or GhostScript (gs) to get the PostScript file. For example:

xelatex foo.tex
pdftops foo.pdf foo.ps

PS: -no-pdf option is not for PostScript output.
