For me there is one reason (to be correct: two, i.e. two different  
versions) to install X11: GNU Emacs. There is no better TeX editor  
around. OK, I have also use for xrmap (poor man's GoogleEarth),  
FontForge, SunClock, GKrellm ...

There isn't much you gain from installing X11. Maybe some experience.  
And in the end you might end with  my application to make X11 a bit  
more useful. (http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/ -> Applications Table)
