$ grep -rI help.tcl * | grep -v locale/po | cut -f1 -d: | uniq

No, only those two used it.

If we remove GRASS's visualization/nviz/html/help.tcl web browser,
that's 120k less source to distribute!

> Please test...

with this set in ~/.grass.bashrc:
  export GRASS_HTML_BROWSER=dillo
it works fine from NVIZ, but the startup GUI defaults to using klunky
old mozilla as .grass.bashrc hasn't been sourced yet(?). Also is there
any way to get rid of or minimize the residual xterm window?
