What I meant was to move NVWISH2.2 to some completely unrelated
directory, then run NVWISH2.2 directly (rather than the "nviz"

I'm trying to check whether the suspicion which I outlined in the the
previous message is correct, i.e. that Tk is using the executable's
pathname to guess the location of its library directory (for tk.tcl

E.g. run:

	mkdir $HOME/foo/bar/baz
	cp /usr/local/grass5/etc/nviz2.2/NVWISH2.2 $HOME/foo/bar/baz

and see which directories are listed in the resulting error message.
