Important question here: What's your shell? If you're using FreeBSD's
standard dialog shell, the C shell, export won't work because it's from
sh or bash.

Make sure you're using bash (see your shell setting from the chsh
command or echo $SHELL).
If you're using the C shell, you can use the setenv command instead.
% setenv DISPLAY 192.168.0.100:0
See the advice regarding xhost in order to have the correct
permissions to run the applications from the desired X server.
