My x11forwarding-enabled SSH-setup sets DISPLAY automagically, so I assume
you don't have enabled the neccessary options for that?
Check your server or client site /etc/ssh/ssh*_config files for that.
I have enabled x11F in both the server and the client iirc, but I don't
know exactly which one is neccessary ;-)
