rviz fails to build

Tried to build Groovy on OSX (10.8) and rviz fails. I installed Ogre with homebrew, but half way through building rviz there are error messages about Ogre.

All of the other packages compile fine until rviz and then rviz dies here:

Thanks ... I got rviz compiled, now I am working on fixing rqt_rviz

There is a bug in rqt where the menu bar doesn't show on mac too. I'll get around to that one ASAP

Sorry, no ... I have a problem of not always working linearly :). I couldn't get rqt_viz working so I deleted the package and moved on to the rosbuild packages. The navigation stuff relied on pcl, so I had to get pcl 1.7 working [done], but now I am hung up on another package.

Sorry, stupid short comments .... I will try to circle back to rqt_rvis later and see what I can do. I want to try and file some bug tickets for @WilliamWoodall on some of my other fixes first though, when I get a chance.

Sorry ... I used the unstable pcl 1.7. I posted the changes needed on the OSX-SIG mailing list. I don't think willow garage is officially interested the unstable pcl. Also, I have not been able to completely test everything, basically I got everything to compile and be happy.

I will have more time this weekend to test things better.
