[vtkusers] Compiling VTK DLLs with -gd suffix?

Hi Cory,

Thanks for your answer! The project I set-up is a simple point-cloud 
visualizer, following the tutorial here: 
http://pointclouds.org/documentation/tutorials/qt_visualizer.php . The 
source files including the CmakeLists.txt can be found here: 

I cmake-gui'd the CMakeLists and created both a Visual Studio 2013 64bit 
project, and a set of Makefiles to use with nmake. I can build the 
qt_visualizer both ways with the same results, so both from within 
Visual Studio and from a command-line.

When I configure a debug-build, I get the request for the -gd dlls.

Best regards,
