Does the wingrass_xserver package (on grass.itc.it and mirrors) not
include NVIZ?

The NVWISH2.2 binary is available separately at:


but that is of no use without the rest of NVIZ.

I've uploaded a package containing the other components of NVIZ (i.e. 
the Tcl scripts and the bitmaps) to ftp://grass.itc.it/incoming;
hopefully that can be made available alongside the NVWISH2.2 binary
(although the package isn't Cygwin-specific, I think that Cygwin is
the only platform where NVIZ isn't included).
