: It is called gcgnav and you have to 'invoke' it after invoking gcg. 

Unfortunately gcgnav is only available for UNIX versions of GCG. If you
run GCG on a VAX you have to stick to text-based menus of which there
are at least two programs around (sorry, don't have names handy; if
you are interested in those you can obtain them via anonymous ftp
from EMBL).

As already mentioned X will be available in Version 8 of GCG (hopefully).
