Ok Glynn.
After starting grass with no flags, this is the message in the terminal:
GRASS 6.4.0RC5 (UTM33WGS84EPGS):~/grass-6.4.0RC5 >
WARNING: Vector digitizer is not available (No module named grass6_wxvdigit)

If I try "3d view" ["Digitize"] in the Display window pulldown menu, the 
result is:
Unable to switch to 3D display [vector digitizer] mode.
The Nviz python extension was not found or loaded properly.
Switching back to 2D display mode.
Details: No module named grass6_wxnviz [grass6_wxvdigit]

"nviz" command from terminal  works and opens a  wx look window  asking 
for input data

"nviz -q" opens a tcltk nviz main widndow

I can find required modules in the downloaded folder where I compiled grass:
~$ locate grass6_wxvdigit

~$ locate grass6_wxvdigit

Another issue (don't know if related to the first one) is ... flying 
mode doesn't seem to work properly and the camera moves forword/back in 
a loopback.
This happens while working with
grass-6.2.3 from Ubuntu rep
grass-6.4.svn both wx/tcltk
grass-6.4-RC5 both wx/tcltk
grass-6.5.svn both wx/tcltk
installed on an Ubintu 9.04 64bit machine

*doesn't* happen with
grass 6.3.0 from Ununtu rep
installed on an Ubuntu 8.10 32bit machine

Thank you.
