Building ParaView on remote machines (e.g. supercomputers) can be difficult due to a variety of reasons. These include lack of needed libraries and difficulty building and installing them, determining appropriate modules to use, cross-compiling, etc. Because of this, Kitware provides a SuperBuild which simplifies the build and install process on a variety of architectures.
