You don't really give enough information to help.  Which compiler? 
Which source files fail to compile?  On which lines?  What are your
cmake settings? etc.

Searching vtk and Mac OS headers seems to show that "Display" is a
struct typedef'ed by X Windows.  Do you mean to use X or do you want to
use Carbon/Cocoa?
