Sorry.  But now it's making sense - as Glynn suggested, somehow  
during the build NVIZ is linking to /usr/libtcl and /usr/libtk.   
These are the symlinks in the system to the system Tcl and Tk  
frameworks.  As far as Glynn's suggestion of creating these symlinks  
to /usr/local/tcltk copies, you shouldn't mess with system stuff (/ 

What is the link command show for nviz when you build grass? it's  
built as nvwish so search for that in the make output.

There should be no -L/usr/lib in there.  That's a default dir for GCC  
and manually adding it somehow can mess up linking priorities, like  
what is happening here.
