I'd use texdoc as *the* tool to display all these different graphics 
formats. In the texdoc script it's easy to set specific programmes to 
do a specific task. texdoc comes with teTeX.

There es no free and native DVI viewer for Mac OS X available, Carbon 
or Aqua. MacDVIX from Tom Kiffe needs to be licensed (and has it's own 
Ghostscript that might need changes to its Fontmap to be able to use 
your own PostScript fonts), and TeXniscope from Massimiliano Gubinelli 
is free but first converts DVI to PDF, so it's rather a PDF viewer. 
Xdvi needs X11 to display anything.
