While you cannot get the focus to follow the mouse from one application to another, it is possible to achieve this within an application:

  • Apple Terminal -- from the command line, run:
         bash$ defaults write com.apple.Terminal FocusFollowsMouse -string YES
  • xterm -- from the command line, run:
         bash$ defaults write com.apple.x11 wm_ffm -bool true
Quit the application to save it and restart it to apply it to any new Apple Terminal/X11 windows. Typing
         bash$ defaults write com.apple.x11 no_quit_alert
into an x11 window (quitting, restarting) will also allow you to log out if X11 is running
