Just checked out latest CVS and recompiled, and now I get the following
when I try to launch nviz from the menu (File -> 3D Rendering -> NVIZ):

child killed: SIGABRT
    while executing
"exec -- $program --tcltk"
    (procedure "run_ui" line 6)
    invoked from within
"run_ui $cmd"
    (procedure "execute" line 3)
    invoked from within
"execute nviz "
    (menu invoke)

When I display the spearfish DEM in a display window and then click on the
nviz button of that window, nothing happens. No error messages, nothing
except for a brief appearance of r.info.exe in the Windows task manager.
