Try downloading the Emacs 21.3.50 binary from Alex Rice's website:


I prefer this Emacs to all others I tried when I was in your position 
about a year ago.  I compiled the source myself, but I suppose the 
binary should work fine.  I used to call xdvi right from Emacs and the 
dvi preview would pop up in X11 just fine.  Now I use pdfeTeX and 
TeXShop as my previewer---it's much nicer, with automatic refreshing of 
the preview window and other niceties.
