Rainer, if you are willing to experiment, we can try the following.
Keep using VTK 4.0, and your current CMake (is it a release ?) and try any 
of those:


edit the top VTK/CMakeList.txt file and add *at the top*:


or the less intrusive b)

Run your favorite CMake cache editor (i.e. CMakeSetup, or ccmake), show the 
advanced values, and add the above flags to any of those (if they exist):


Thus, your CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS will probably look like:

Keep me posted if any of those work
