I almost forgot this issue:

 - using VTK_USE_SYSTEM_EXPAT:BOOL=ON had problems

The Debian packages take advantage of the other VTK_USE_SYSTEM_*
settings, but something seems amiss with the expat stuff. The problem
was due to VTK expat stuff being put in the include path via cmake.
It's not immediately obvious to me how to fix this, but probably
someone with more cmake experience will think it's easy.

Debian has a /usr/include/expat.h file and
/usr/lib/libexpat.so available.

Also, Debian has the FreeType 2 font engine in its libfreetype*
packages. Perhaps a VTK_USE_SYSTEM_FREETYPE could be added?


Note the Depends: line handles jpeg, png, tiff and zlib...
