This is a thread to discuss naming conventions for VTK in macports.

Macports has the following VTK ports (as of 04/13/2009):

VTK @4.4.2 (graphics)
    3D visualization toolkit

vtk5 @5.2.1 (graphics, devel)
    3D visualization toolkit

In the Debian distribution, there are quite a few packages, eg:

A similar story with FreeBSD, see:

Note that both Debian and FreeBSD list VTK in several categories, including
'libs', 'libdevel', 'graphics', and 'math'.

Many of these separate packages in Debian and FreeBSD probably equate to
'variants' in a macport.

Take care, Darren
