How does this change affect our package devs?  I'm guessing they would have to make some package dependencies changes if OCC is going to be the default.  I would like to hear from them before we make OCC the default.

How will this affect those of us who build KiCad from source? I have liboce packages installed which provide OCE. If you change to OCC what package(s) will I need then? The distro I use (Linux Mint) has libocct (Open CASCADE Technology) packages. Is that what I will need or will I have to find another source (ie. a PPA) for the support libraries?
