This sounds like an issue for whoever maintains the texlive.spm
you're using. The default TeX Live build *always* uses its own
freetype2 (and various other libraries), regardless of -devel
packages you may have; so the spec file you're using must be
attempting to configure the build differently.

Either it failed to build xetex, or something was missing or
inconsistent about the initialization files/macros for the xetex-
based formats. As suggested by the fmtutil error message, check for
xetex.log and xelatex.log files in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-var/
web2c; they may indicate what is wrong.
(As you're trying to build from a snapshot of the development tree,
it's entirely possible that something was in an inconsistent state at
the point where you copied the files.)
