Sorry, my mistake :-(

Somewhere on my hard disk was another (old) version of XQuartz.app/ 
(actually in ~/Downloads/) and it seems that it prevented the 
XQuartz.pkg installer to copy the XQuartz.app/ (version 1.7.3) to 
I.e.: the installer seemed to work perfectly, finishing with
"Installation Successful" and with no errors in the logfile,
but eventually no XQuartz.app was found in /Application/Utilities/

Deleting ~/Downloads/XQuartz.app/ and relaunching XQuartz.pkg
solved the problem.

(And I use a MacBookPro1,1 under 10.6.2)
