After pulling from gerrit and re-compiling I started seeing many
overloaded-virtual warnings from GCC (version 4.6.1):

/home/kyle/VTK/Filtering/vtkAlgorithm.h:379:16: warning: ‘virtual void
vtkAlgorithm::Update(int)’ was hidden [-Woverloaded-virtual]
/home/kyle/VTK/Rendering/vtkPolyDataMapper.h:54:8: warning:   by
‘virtual void vtkPolyDataMapper::Update()’ [-Woverloaded-virtual]

The same error is repeated for many (all?) of the classes that inherit
from vtkAlgorithm.
