Martin wrote on Friday that he had disabled wxNviz in relbr64 at r49360, 
so I assumed that by checking out r49406, I would avoid the problem I had 
seen in the RC2 tarball. Am I missing a dependency that is not being 
trapped by configure? Why does a post-r49360 checkout from:

svn checkout https://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass/branches/releasebranch_6_4 

still try to build wxnviz? Where should I look to see which files were 
changed by r49360 on the server, so that I can compare with the ones I 
checked out?
