The first one is just an alias, but the second one I've forgotten!

The second line arranges the default behaviour of xdvi, whether it  
creates an ISO A4, letter, or whatever frame to draw the page  
contents in it. It also creates a default for colours or the buttons  
and menus layout (and fonts used) which would otherwise be needed to  
be provided by ~/.Xdefaults. I'm not sure how far these settings  
deviate from sane xdvi internals ... Oh, I've just seen, that the  
help texts are also contained in it – would be fun to translate them!
