I only need this package to run mayavi-py3 and I had a hunch that those gigabytes of database libraries and MPI and java and whatnot are not really necessary for this purpose. I experimented a bit and made a fork of this package that only builds those VTK modules that are explicitly referenced from the mayavi source. I was able to cut down the dependencies to just python, qt4 and jsoncpp, and the package itself is also much smaller. It still takes forever to compile, but the original package took two forevers. I haven't done extensive testing but for my purposes mayavi works fine with this stripped-down version of VTK.

The fork is available here:
If there is general interest and the package seems to work for others I'll upload it to AUR.

After installing vtk-py3-qt4 and removing the build dependencies I had to install unixodbc, jsoncpp, gdal and openmpi again to resolve linking errors when using a simple mayavi script. These packages should probably go to depends instead of makedepends. Or maybe they could be somehow made optional in the build phase.

Yup, that is weird.

Installing qt5-webkit (and its dependencies) took care of the error. Odd that cmake couldn't produce a meaningful error message, but instead complained about a macro defined in a file already provided by qt5-base. Thanks for helping in clearing this out!

On my up to date arch system compilation succeeds.

do you have /lib/cmake/Qt5Core/Qt5CoreConfig.cmake provided by qt5-base?

in Examples/GUI/Qt/CMakeLists.txt it looks for qt5-webkit
You can try installing qt5-webkit or disable examples in PKGBUILD.

SRCINFO has a pkgrel out of date.

Thanks for helping out! The problem still persists even with the added qtwebkit dependency. The error message is quite cryptic, because it refers to a command that is defined in a file provided by qt5-base, which I have installed. Could this issue be caused by some recent change in qt or cmake? Have you tried compiling this package recently?

Here are the relevant build logs:

The logs provided by cmake don't seem to be very helpful though...

You might need qtwebkit dependency, that I've added to makedepends just now.
You can use my built pkg as another option:

Please provide more info (full configure log), because I think libs installed in the system causes your error.

I will check it soon.
