With the code currently in CVS (ok, mine is a couple of weeks old) I
didn't have to do anything special to make it build.  I didn't change
any code or change any .cmake files or anything.  It seems the big
difference between what we are doing is that I'm not doing any Java.  I
guess there must be some problems with the vtk java stuff on the Mac,
but I'm afraid I don't know Java, so can't help much. :(

If you want, I could build you the code I have with the Carbon support
on, but without java.  mail me off list.
