My bad, it's a COMPILE_DEPENDS. Though why that is isn't obvious.
Removing that dependency and then disabling the module should work.

IMO, distribution builds should try to enable *everything* so there
isn't a question of "what do I have today?" when doing `import vtk`.
Keeping it disabled for 8.2 sounds fine, but 9.x will make it easier to
not have the linking problem.
