You have used development version of Inkscape that contains javafx-out.cpp(h)
extension supporting so called "Preview version" of JavaFX which was
released by the end of July, 2008.
After that Sun produced 2 releases: JavaFX 1.0 (December 4th, 2008) and
JavaFX 1.1 (Febrary 12th(?), 2009). In both realeases JavaFX language
you can observe incompatibilities even on source level.
I've looked on your .fx file and see it was produced by "standard"
(current) version of Inkscape
and, therefore, can be viewed only by compiling and running by JavaFX
of course, if you have JavaFX Preview dev kit installed.

Java SDK 6 update 11 is not enough.
Check if you have JavaFX dev kit installed and do compiling yourself.
No special viewer

Let me explain you directly. The CURRENT dev version which is in svn repository
on mainline cannot produce fxz/fxd file. It can produce .fxz file if
the patch I proposed
would be applied. If you ask me when it will happen, the answer is:
I have no idea,....
may be never. Here I cannot help.
