Hey Marcus,

The only thing I've noticed so far that doesn't match up with the other wrapped modules is that you need an extra section towards the end of [VTK]/Wrapping/Python/CMakeLists.txt file that defines VTK_PYTHON_USE_CHARTS like:


and then add a line to setup.py.in that uses that variable:

vtk_use_charts = @VTK_PYTHON_USE_CHARTS@

I think you covered the rest of the bases.

There is probably more to do still, and I would appreciate feedback on how well this is working. I may not have caught all of the install rules, and need to look into doing the same for Tcl and Java. I thought more of this was automated...
