The "remote modules" feature was added just before the VTK 6.3 release,
and of course it can benefit from additional testing.  The CMakeLists.txt in
vtk-dicom itself don't yet fit cleanly into the needed "modular"
Bill did a couple passes through the cmake code to get things working, and
I meant to do a sweep through the code myself last weekend to clean things
up, but I've been overextended recently.

Hopefully, everything will be tidy by VTK 7 (whenever that will be) and
if there is a VTK 6.4, it'll be fixed there, too.

But for now, I recommend that people using VTK 6.3 (or earlier) build
vtk-dicom separately rather than enable it as a remote module.
