this means that your application is trying to open an X11 display but
you have no X11 running.
I see two options:
-> install X11 server (unluckily, at some point Apple stopped supplying
one, so MacPorts has one)
-> see if your specific Application has a "native" variant, which in
MacPorts is usually enabled with the +quartz variant
E.g. gimp has both versions, but defaults to X11.
