It definitely used to work natively on Windows, and I think that it
also worked natively on OSX.

ISTR a comment that it stopped around the time that Bob changed NVIZ
from being a self-contained C module to a combination of a script
($GIBASE/bin/nviz) and a modified wish ($GISBASE/etc/nviz2.2/nviz).

That may just be a rumour, though. It would be nice if someone[1]
could confirm this, by compiling versions before and after 2006-12-11
for native Windows.
