Hmm... on my Mac, for some reason "Skim" has been previously set 
(I guess by me ;-) )
as  the default application for ".dvi" files. (I presume Skim
uses dvipdf which comes with ghostscript, but I don't know, I
only observed Skim does no conversion if the corresponding
.pdf file already exists)

Anyway, I do suppose the best xdvi viewer on modern Mac OS X
systems is "xdvi" running with XQuartz display, thus my question
was about the relevance of making this the default in AUCTeX.

best wishes
