VTK can't use system versions of NetCDF, DICOMParser and FTGL libraries
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
Axel Thimm is trying to include VTK in Fedora Extras repository. (see: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/199405)
Durring this Patrice Dumas discovered that user can't use system versions of NetCDF, DICOMParser and FTGL libraries, but i.e system versions of zlib or FreeType can be used.
The next problem with this is that above libraries included in VTK source are outdated. It would be much appreciated to enable in VTK use of system wide versions of NetCDF, DICOMParser and FTGL libraries.
