Hi, Scott,

We corresponded about this a while back.

I have a version of vtk running under OSX public beta.

A little more than a recompile was necessary, namely new vtkRenderWindow
and vtkRenderWindowInteractor subclasses to deal with the Quartz window
manager. An ObjC - C++ bridge file is also necessary, since the current
version of the compiler does not compile files which mix ObjC and C++.

As soon as I get the release version of OSX installed, I will move this
stuff over there, and fix the build process so that installation is less
painful than it is now.

I will post when this stuff is done.
