If you have installed Wierda's recent distribution and run his 
configuration script, all I can think is

1) Do you have a mixture of Wierda's and fink distributions of TeX?

2) Where is the .dvi file you try to view located? I mean ---is it in a 
write-protected directory? For example, a .dvi file inside 
/usr/local/teTeX... If so, you have to copy it to your Desktop or any 
other folder in your Home.

If neither is the case, I suggest you to inform Mr. Wierda about your 
setup, so he can help you.
