I principle, I agree and have done similar with other packages.  However, this
one is quite complex VTK is configured specifically for use with ParaView.  The
Kitware developers don't recommend it (though they don't support using the
system Tcl/Tk which I have done).  So, I'm planning on leaving it the way it is
for now.

In the meantime, I've got a new version that creates an MPI version as well
(just need the new spec):

This is a beast to compile.  Takes about 2 hours on a fast Athlon 64 system.
