Yes and no. The actual program does, but it is started with a "-nolisten
tcp" which disables that functionality. If you go into the startup
script for it and remove the nolisten option then it will accept X

However, what is your use case for this? In most cases, if you are
accessing a remote X client, you are doing so by SSH (at least I should
hope so!) and in that case SSH's X forwarding will work without opening
up the TCP server side.
