Hi Chandra,

Here is what I use on the SGI 330:

First, copy the attached user.make into the vtk directory.  Then, do
./configure --with-shared --with-tcl --with-python --with-tkwidget \
 --with-patented --with-contrib

Note the '--with-shared' and also that there is no '--with-mesa'

make install

Next, you will probably have to edit /etc/ld.so.conf and add
'/usr/local/lib' if it is not there already, and then run
/sbin/ldconfig to force the system to re-read /etc/ld.so.conf.

That should be it!

 - David
