If you want to have this faster, convince Kitware that they should
release more[1] documentation for CMake (both packagers and Octaviz
upstream would appreciate that). Or at least that they make their book
easily purchasable outside the US.

Because our days have only 24 hours. Additionally, I didn't want to have
a new version of Octaviz in Debian unstable before the freeze (it's
easier to get a new version into Debian's testing branch if you can just
adapt the current version in unstable).

If you are using Ubuntu: check your VTK version first.

[1] And no, a list of commands is *not* documentation. As isn't a book
that's specifically said to be outdated.
