It seems we have one machine building against 10.5 right now for the
superbuild (which builds Java binaries):


Looking at the output, it is targeting 10.6's SDK with 10.5 as a
minimum. Sebastien, what should we bump this to? 10.6? Most other
VTK-based projects are targeting 10.7 or higher.

Rest looks fine with me.

nullptr is probably a good place to start. I assume it also does 0 ->
nullptr replacements?
