If you are refering to Andy Burnett's 4.1.3 Binaries on Moon, then running
his "ginstall" script should have updated $GIS/etc/monitorcap to the
partiticular location within your filesystem where it was installed.  If
NOT then you will have to modify the paths in monitorcap so they actually
access for your FIFOs.  With monitorcap pointing to actual FIFOs and your
XFree86 Server configured for 256 colors, "d.mon start=x?" should open a
display window (after a reasonable delay)!
