[vtkusers] vtk build on Mac OSX

I am attempting to build VTK on MacOSX 10.4 (Tiger). I am trying to
build it just as an X11 app (without the Carbon/Cocoa frameworks) - has
anyone tried this?

I am running into one symbol definition problem.

I have tracked it down to a function in the vtkAbstractMapper:

{void oft_initCommon()
    extern void _ZNSt8ios_base4InitC4Ev();

which is a function in the stdc++  library  -Thus the loader dies on  
this - this seems to
be used in every vtk library,  as some kind of a workaround.
