That implies that NVIZ is linking against 8.5 Tcl/Tk DLLs, but
$GRASS_WISH refers to an older version.

Essentially, NVIZ, v.digit (the Tcl/Tk one) and the form library used
by e.g. d.what.vect are hybrid Tcl/Tk + C programs which link against
the Tcl/Tk libraries as detected by configure. OTOH, d.m, gis.m,
d.rast.edit (the Tcl/Tk one) and the option forms are all pure Tcl/Tk
code (no C) which is executed using $GRASS_WISH.
