Thanks Glen,

  The files you highlighted had what I needed.  I have another "quick" 
question related to this subject... using CMAKE I pointed the build process 
at the absolute path containing my VTKData.  However, CMAKE changed the 
absolute path to a relative path (making the assumption that you want to use 
VTKData from four levels deep in the VTK directory structure).  Is this the 
standard operating procedure for VTK/Cmake?  How can I force CMake to use the 
absolute path?  Thanks again for your help.
