Hi all:

I used the opengl paths that was recommended but during my build i  
get the following error:

In file included from /Users/vivekd/VTK/Rendering/ 
                  from /Users/vivekd/VTK/Rendering/ 
/Users/vivekd/VTK/Rendering/vtkOpenGL.h:24:43: error: GL/gl.h: No  
such file or directory
/Users/vivekd/VTK/Rendering/vtkOpenGLPolyDataMapper.h:87: error:  
'GLenum' has not been declared
/Users/vivekd/VTK/Rendering/vtkOpenGLPolyDataMapper.h:98: error:  
'GLenum' has not been declared
/Users/vivekd/VTK/Rendering/vtkOpenGLRenderWindow.h:101: error:  
'GLuint' has not been declared
make[2]: *** [Rendering/CMakeFiles/vtkRendering.dir/ 
vtkGraphicsFactory.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [Rendering/CMakeFiles/vtkRendering.dir/all] Error 2

any suggestions would be great
