Which ever you find easier... In the latter case, make sure you have
NULL's defined properly.  d.rast -o <raster> will overlay and not draw
the NULL's as white.  Don't know how good the orthophotos will look
draped over a DEM.

Presumably you don't have Mesa3.0 installed (OpenGL clone).

d3d may be better for the orthophotos than NVIZ.  NVIZ does a fair bit
of interpolation to speed rendering, at the cost of detail.
