Yes. You have to re-start OS X, of course, ar at least you have to log 
out and log in again, as it says here: 
http://wiki.lyx.org/Mac/Environment 8-) That's all. Now starting xdvi 
works from within Apple's terminal.

Thanks again, Pete. It all works fine now. Configuring AUCTeX will be 
the next step. Although I like TeXShop for small tasks such as writing 
letters I would like to stay with Emacs in general. So I prefer the 
usual X11 appliations. Nice to have xdvi for working now. 8-)
