Thanks Peauru for the info.  I tried to install the FreeBSD vtk port,
but it won't compile.  It ran for an hour and then crashed.  I did
install it on windows so we'll see how that works today.  I've been
focusing most of my effort to port Animabob to Cygwin.  I am very
impressed with Cygwin so far as its XFree86 was easy to set up with no
XFree86config.  I also found the OpenDX port to Cygwin, so I'll play
with that a little as well.
