This is not a FreeBSD question, it is a general Unix/X question.

Anyway, on the machie you want to display the X graphics do

  % xhost +foo.my.net

where "foo.my.net" is the name of the other machine. To run an X
application on the other machine that you want to display on yours

  % setenv DISPLAY bar.my.net:0
  % xv &

or

  % DISPLAY=bar.my.net:0
  % export DISPLAY
  % xv &

Note that if you plan to start xterm windows or emacs over a modem
line it is *much* faster to start local xterm windows and do a rlogin
in that window. You then start thing like emacs in that window in text
mode "emacs -nw".
