I can run X apps inside a ports jail, this behaviour seem to change
since 9.0

I am testing with gvim, inside the port jail

[loox at Jailbird ~]% gvim 
E233: cannot open display


[loox at Jailbird ~]% export DISPLAY=":0.0"

I was able to run gvim normally.

Was this by design?

PD. I am still in RCx, but feedback @IRC says that works with 91-rel
