Here is why:
Ordinarily, TeX buffers its output dvi file.
Tom Rokicki made changes here on the NeXT platform.
This allowed dvi files to be previewed while TeX was still running.
--enable-ipc adds these changes to the system dependent part of TeX.
This adds a command line flag --ipc, whic turns off buffering.
The texd project, and also dvipng and PyX, use this when available.
(All 3 projects are on sourceforge.)
For several years tex on Debian has included this feature.
