Huh? It seems to me the issue is, that the $PATH doesn't include the  
install location of xdvi! Display might be ok, don't mess it up now!

Rather do a "which xdvi" on your Terminal.app (the one without X11,  
where you got the error message about the display in the first  
place), copy the resulting path and open it in xterm under x11. Will  
be something like /usr/local/bin/xterm or close to that :) Hopefully...

And THEN you can debug te display...
