Rich, the modules are not back-end for nviz but stand-alone, functional (?)
modules :-)

You don't have them because they are not included in the current
binary versions of GRASS 5. The reason is that there are some severe
bugs inside which needs to be fixed (volunteers??).

If interested, I have written something about the G3D here:

Volume modelling of soils using GRASS GIS 3d tools. -
in: Brovelli, M. (ed.)(2001): The Geomatics Workbook N. 2. Politecnico di
Milano, Italy (ISSN 1591-092X)

Maybe not exiting, but a short description.

If you want to try/fix the grid3d modules you can download from the 
GRASS CVS site. The code is in the "experimental (main) tree", not in
the stable branch we are currently working on.
