I'm the guy who compiles the Mac binaries, but this particular problem is way above my pay grade. Here are two additional data points.

a) The 2022 version of xdvi-xaw, compiled a week ago, has the same problem

b) If the 2022 xdvi-xaw universal binary is replaced by the 2022 x86_64 xdvi-xaw (containing no arm code), it still works, displaying your file in X11, but it also crashes the same way.
