As a side note, there used to be a special hack to compile VTK on 
Jaguar. Which was recently removed from VTK CVS. That means you won't be 
able to compile VTK unless you put back the hack (*).

(*) Look for in older VTK version:
//-----  This hack needed to compile using gcc3 on OSX until new 
#include <stdio.h>
void oft_initRenOSXInit()
   extern void _ZNSt8ios_base4InitC4Ev();
