 Replying to [comment:6 ewcgrass]:
 > I don't expect that I should have to recompile grass 6.2.0, 6.2.3 and
 6.4.0-RC3 after doing a minor upgrade from tk-8.5.3-4 to tk-8.5.3-5, but I
 guess one never knows for sure without trying. I need to leave for a
 couple of hours but when I return (and checking here first), I will
 remove, compile, and reinstall all versions of grass and report my
 findings using both my files and spearfish.

 I agree, at least I didn't have to do that on my Fedora 10 installation.
 You said you installed grass-6.3.0 from repository, everything else you
 compiled yourself. At the moment I guess that grass-6.4.0RC3 is the
 version of choice for production work. Can you remove grass-6.3.0, sudo
 ldconfig and try nviz with 6.4 again? The idea is that there may be a
 conflict between grass libraries, and that the grass-6.3.0 libraries are
 somewhere in a system-wide location. Hopefully this removal doesn't mess
 up the gdal installation. This is a wild guess, if this doesn't work, you
 must hope for some help from someone knowing nviz and its tcl/tk usage.
 All I can say is that it works on my Fedora 10 installation, and that I
 don't use grass versions from the repository, instead sandbox versions of
 6.4, 6.5 and 7, all work fine.
