You're right, i-Installer fails to install gv on Leopard. Status lines

Checking (required) dependency set 0 (all should be available).  
Reason: X11R6 + Xaw3d needs to be installed on your system
## Required  file /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.dylib is available. Good.
## Required  file /usr/X11R6/lib/libXaw3d.dylib is available. Good.
Dependency requirements fulfilled.
Starting trueinstall tasks
Prepare stage completed
Unarchive stage failed

And corresponding error message is:

/usr/bin/tar: ./usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults: Cannot open: File exists

I've no idea what that means. Not using gv myself, I can't help.  
Remember moreover the warning in the i-package Readme:

• NOTE: gv is old and as far as I know not maintained. I had to hack  
around in the sources to get it to work and I will not be able to  
provide decent support.

And that was even before Gerben announced end of support for i-
