Launch X11 xterm windows from anywhere

you can also just use the command open-x11 which is an apple-provided script to start an x11 program, starting x11.app if it is not currently running.

Right and you can combine that with this hint to make a easy solution. Just enter this into Script Editor, save it as an application, and then place the application in the Dock:

do shell script "open-x11 xterm"
