The programs in teTeX (e.g. xdvi and ghostscript) are compiled without
support for X-Windows. You will have to grab the sources of ghostscript
(www.ghostscript.org) or xdvi and compile them yourself including support
for X-Windows (see the installation instructions). Ghostscript compiles
'out of the box' on OSX. Maybe there is somebody out there offering
binaries, fink or gnu-darwin possibly?

Have fun,
