After several months of absense from the list, "Gala'Vi and Liss @ 
Mainframe Country" is back, under a different e-mail address. I've 
moved on from NCSA and now reside at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

Yeah, and we've got Macs. I've managed to get VTK 4.0 working without 
too many problems before on Linux. I've ran 3.2 on Mac OSX with a very 
good degree of success.

Now I'm on 4.0, with CMake and all this crud. VTK compiled fine with 
X11 and OpenGL support and tests run and display fine on my new 
dual-processor G4. However, I don't seem to be able to compile an 
application using VTK 4.0. It just barfs at me with a bunch of 
unresolved symbol errors (unresolved for every object there is) I think 
this has something to do with the absense of lib*.a files, but there 
doesn't seem to be any way that I could think of to get the static 
libraries to build. I'm not a CMake pro and am lucky that the darn 
thing worked. I liked the old way much better, at least I didn't have 
to deal with yet another nasty package.

Anyways, if anybody managed to get their own test applications to work 
on OSX, please let me know.
