[vtkusers] probe vtk6 installation for AUTOINIT values

I suppose this is a CMake question, but it pertains to VTK, so I apologize
if it is not the right place to ask this.

Is there any way to probe an existing VTK 6  installation for the AUTOINIT
string that is used during compilation. For instance on my local machine,
these define statements are necessary


But hard coding these values will clearly not be portable. If anyone has
found a solution to this I'd appreciate any ideas. For what it's worth, I'm
using SCons instead of CMake to build a library which can use an existing
VTK installation. So it is possible to parse through files, but not simply
grab CMake variables (that I know of at least).

Thanks for any ideas.
