Hi Kevin,

I finally build VTK on my mac (macOS Sierra 10.12.3 - 16D32)

I can run vtk.sample.Demo with the usual external window issue except on
that time the actual rendering window is half the size of the actual

For the Jogl I get a segfault right away.

$ java -cp

Abort trap: 6

I don't know if the issue come from jogl or VTK with macOS Sierra.

Anyway, wanted to let you know,
