It looks like the VTK I built from source apparently does not have MPI
enabled (neither vtkMPIController.h nor libvtkParallelMPI-7.1.dylib is
present in my installation) as it was never required for our code prior to

would pass to cmake when building VTK to turn this on?  My guess is
something like:
