I think X11.pkg is on Panther's CD 3. It's advisable to install it 
before TeX, as IIRC i-Installer checks, during installation of the TeX 
i-Package, whether X11 is there or not, and if it's there then 
i-Installer installs the X11 version of xdvi, so that you can use xdvi 
to preview your .dvi files as well.

To get nice-looking icons for xfig it's also advisable to install the 
Xaw3d i-Package, again IIRC (I don't have xfig installed myself).
