Nothing here that would call X11, apparently. It's practically the  
same path that is obtained in a login shell after letting i-Installer  
perform CLI activation for the GhostScript i-Package (adding /usr/ 
local/bin) and the TeX i-Package (adding /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc- 
apple-darwin-current or /usr/local/teTeX/bin/i386-apple-darwin- 
current depending on your setup).

Maybe some ~/.bashrc, ~/.bash_profile, ~/.login or ~/.xinitrc is  
interfering here, but we're entering uncharted territories (for me)  
and I'd rather stop suggesting anything.

Maybe going through Peter Dyballa's detailed instructions at <http:// 
www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/Make_X11_Ready/Readme.html> would provide  
hints. Are you sure you didn't install Pete's X11 package?

BTW, to Gary and Joe: the link "Make X11 Ready" in the Applications  
Table <http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/MacOS_X_TeX_Table.shtml> at Mac- 
TeX points to a ReadMe file <http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/ 
Make_X11_Ready/Readme.html>, but not to the actual package. Namely,  
the ReadMe mentions some software but this software is nowhere to be  
seen. Did I miss a link within the ReadMe?
