[vtkusers] OS X 10.3 and VTK Application Build

I was able to solve this problem from the assistance of the following  
two articles on setting up VTK for Cocoa development and correspondence  
with the article's author, Drew McCormack.  (This may be redundant to a  
previous post in the archive, but I did not find these articles  
referenced.  They are an excellent resource for any interested in doing  
VTK development within XCode.)

Developing visualization applications with Cocoa and VTK (pt1 and 2)

The complication that I had below was that I did not set the path to  
the VTK libraries in my Target setup.  Here are the steps that I  
followed, courtesy of Drew:
 From your project in XCode
- Click on the target
- Show Info
- Got to compiler settings and find the library search path.
- Make sure it has the path to the static vtk library directory  

Happy Coding.
