Yes, it does. If you are asking about the version of X11:
X11 1.1.3 - XFree86 4.4.0

This works too. But I am not fascinated by the viewer. Under Linux, the 
Emacs's default viewing with C-c C-c invokes
<View command: xdvi lec2.dvi>

and it looks much better. But I am not sure if it were xdvi or xdvik.
