I just uploaded vtk7, I knew where to look because I did the changes
that made the libraries go away, and the python thing was not so
difficult after all.

Thanks, btw: Mathieu (who proposed the libvtk7gdcm) is actually

The problem is that vtk6 and vtk7 share many symbols, so linking both
into the same executable is likely to create problems.

TBH I never tried with gdcm, I think I started to upload the package
when it was already at version 2.4 and I didn't even note that there is
a script for the symbols there (which points at 2.2). 

When I started packaging some of my software (mia) that has lots of
templates I just noted that getting symbols right there is kind of an
infinite task because each arch would need its own file because of
templates that on 64 bit use some types that are not available, and
were not instanciated on 32 bit systems. Maybe the tools are better
now, but at that time (2012) it was all kind of wired.

Just had as peek, my guess is that this will help: 

ifeq ($(DEB_BUILD_ARCH),i386)
  export DEB_CXXFLAGS_MAINT_APPEND=-ffloat-store

The same was needed for ITK because they write tests with floating
point values apparently comparing with high accuracy, and on i386
optimizations can lead to the used of intermediate 80 bit floating
point values that then result in test failures because the references
were tuned for 64 bit floating point values. Adding above flag makes
sure that intermediate results are not keps in these 80 bit FPU
