I seem to always get some error while at the Vtkm compilation stage. I've tried adjust the parameters set by the for loops to what the arch paraview & VTK packages use (they are different) but neither seems to work.

[14334/18859] Running cpp protocol buffer compiler on vtkPVMessage.proto FAILED: ParaViewCore/ServerImplementation/Core/vtkPVMessage.pb.h ParaViewCore/ServerImplementation/Core/ cd /data/paraview_org/paraview-git/src/build/ParaViewCore/ServerImplementation/Core && /data/paraview_org/paraview git/src/build/bin/vtkprotoc-pv5.6 --cpp_out dllexport_decl=VTKPVSERVERIMPLEMENTATIONCORE_EXPORT:/data/paraview_org/paraview-git/src/build/ParaViewCore/ServerImplementation/Core -I /data/paraview_org/paraview-git/src/paraview/ParaViewCore/ServerImplementation/Core /data/paraview_org/paraview-git/src/paraview/ParaViewCore/ServerImplementation/Core/vtkPVMessage.proto terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::system_error'

I've attempted to use the paraview nightly binaries but it appears that some part of it is compiled against an old fontconfig version which makes the 'paraview' executable impossible to use even with redirected library versions.

Also, it would be a good idea to incorporate the submodules into the sources array and reference them in prepare() rather than have to download them every time.

I maintaine (sort of) similar software suits that have similar systemic build issues so to be clear I'm not pestering the maintainer to fix the issue, I mearly want to document my experience and recomendations.
