Hi everybody,

   This is the first time I use VTK. I want to install VTK 4.0 locally on my Sun 
Blade 100 workstation. The OS is Sun Solaris 5.8 (or SunOS 2.8). I was able to 
compile everything, except when it gets to the part where VTK executable is 
being built, and I got the following error:
/vtk/VTK/Wrapping/Tcl: building default_target
/cmake/bin/cmake -S/vtk/VTK/Wrapping/Tcl -O/vtk/VTK/Wrapping/Tcl -H/vtk/VTK 
`cmake.check_depends' is up to date.
`cmake.depends' is up to date.

Does anyone know what went wrong? I am all ears!

Thank you in advance.
