You're right! VTK_USE_CARBON was on. I ignored that option because I
ignorantly assumed that QT replaced the system windowing stuff, and I
had turned QT off. I'm trying a build with -D VTK_USE_CARBON:BOOL=OFF
and the Mesa in my home directory.

Will ParaView3 built against Mesa be able to use offscreen rendering
despite ParaView3/Servers/ServerManager/vtkSMRenderViewProxy.cxx:

	// Offscreen rendering is not functioning properly on the mac.
	// Do not use it.
	#if !defined(__APPLE__)
