Summary0027672: VTK7 support
DescriptionToday it is not possible to compile OCCT with VTK7. This possibility is required for internal R&D. It has also been asked several times by community, e.g. here:

Changes to apply are minor. They include the following modifications:

- Linker options have to be adjusted for TKIVtk and TKIVtkDraw libraries. E.g. instead of vtkCommonCore.lib it is now required to have vtkCommonCore-7.0.lib. Some new libraries can be required (the actual list of libraries is still to precise).

- VTK_MODULE_INIT(vtkRenderingOpenGL) to be changed with VTK_MODULE_INIT(vtkRenderingOpenGL2) for VTK7.

VTK7 works generally faster than VTK6, so people prefer the newer version.
TagsNo tags attached.

Dear bugmaster,

After internal discussion, we believe that VTK6 support should be kept together with VTK7. I wonder if 0026512 makes sense for VTK7: all my experiments show that today CMake cannot handle it. Could you check?
