I re-installed the TeX i-package (2004, full option) and now latex 
produces a dvi file. However, I now get another error:

~/tex/EquivClasses: xdvi equiv
/usr/bin/xdvi: line 46: exec: xdvi-xaw.bin: not found

xdvi is a symlink to /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin6.8/xdvi

Any idea what's wrong?

PS I need xdvi as part of a larger system, and need its ability to 
watch the dvi file and refresh automatically.
