Summary0012639: Configuration with MESA enabled is a nightmare
DescriptionCurrently you have to set the following flags to properly build with OSMesa.

OPENGL_INCLUDE_DIR set to OSMesa library
OPENGL_gl_LIBRARY is empty if you want offscreen rendering
OPENGL_glu_LIBRARY set the to library built by OSMesa
VTK_USE_X is turned off

Ontop of that VTK_USE_X doesn't properly clear itself once it is toggled on, so if that happens you need to blow away the entire build directory.

We really should have a single non advanced option which is ENABLE_OSMESA which does everything for the end user.

Furthermore, if Mesa is turned on, if a user turns on an incompatible switch, at least a warning message should be printed out.

OK, I just checked, and VTK_USE_X is turned on by default, and must explicitly be turned off. This is nuts.
