its DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH and it needs to point to the X11 lib folder...
for a normal XQuartz install it would be.
for macports its done automatically for you, but it does...
export DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/local/lib
if you on an older Mac that cannot use the newer XQuartz installs... you may have various issues, but the statement would be...
or on some 10.4 installs with original X11

Its best to use the newest version of XQuartz, which is basically what Macports builds for you as well.
