Note: I know the below isn´t a direct answer to your question, rather a workaround for your problem (rviz not working on groovy).

What you can do instead of compiling from source is just using the hydro rviz version. If you have space and bandwidth to spare, this should be faster and easier to make work than compiling yourself. To do so, perform the following steps:

Install rviz for hydro:

sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-rviz

In the terminal that you will use to start rviz, source hydro´s setup.bash:

source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash

Start rviz:

rosrun rviz rviz
