That might not be the case because, the nVidia rpms only provide the
OpenGL library and not the headers.  IIRC, the headers that ship with
RH also had a problem so, the problem may also be due to this.  My
suggestion is to visit the search email link from the vtk home page


and enter the string

"HOWTO get VTK 3.1.2 to work on RedHat 7.0" and then search.

You should hit some informative messages.
