Currently it is not.  The viewer is started by means of
`TeX-run-discard' which discards the process output, see
`TeX-command-list'.  Formerly `TeX-run-silent' was used which would
generally allow for the output to be gathered and shown, but this did
not work with xdvi detaching itself from the terminal in case source
specials were used.  I played a bit with `process-connection-type' and
when this is set to nil, `TeX-run-silent' can be used with source
specials.  But with this setting the xdvi process dies as soon as font
creation comes into play.  I am running out of options ...
