Apple has an X11 FAQ <http://developer.apple.com/qa/qa2001/ 
qa1232.html>, which, unfortunately, doesn't mention much more than  
~/.xinitrc, /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc and ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist.

It also mentions, though, the command open-x11 to launch X11  
applications from Terminal. Thus you can use in Terminal, for example,

open-x11 xdvi

and that will launch X11.app then xdvi inside it. I've just tried:  
when asking for the default path in the xterm that pops up in the  
process, you get:

Portable-de-Bruno:~ brunovoisin$ echo $PATH

meaning that gwTeX directories are indeed seen. Why the duplicated / 
usr/X11R6/bin I don't know.
