Hi Olly -

Thanks for the reply.  I downloaded the patch file vtk6.patch and tried to 
apply it to the Therion 5.3.15 source tree.  It looks like the first part 
worked but not the second.  Here is the output from patch:

[bgee at main2 therion]$ patch -p1 -i vtk6.patch 
patching file loch/lxData.cxx
Hunk #1 succeeded at 540 (offset 5 lines).
Hunk #2 succeeded at 582 (offset 5 lines).
patching file loch/Makefile
Hunk #1 FAILED at 37.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file loch/Makefile.rej
[bgee at main2 therion]$ 

If I try to compile this, it goes further than before but still fails while 
processing loch.  It appears to still be looking for vtk libraries in the 
vtk-5.4 directory.

Regards - Bill Gee
