Good evening,

I'm experiencing difficulties compiling GMSH with OCC7.

I have already tried the instrucions indicated in the README file about -
DCMAKE, but have had no success.

I am currently running Arch Linux 64 bit.

OpenCasCade is installed in /opt/opencascade/

I tried setting OCC_LIBS = /opt/opencascade but I did not have any luck.

What are the exact CMAKE flags that I should use? Are they meant to link to a 
specific file or just a folder?

The opencascade folder hierarchy is this:


CMAKE outputs that it is unable to find any of the OCC libs such as TKBREP, 
TKSTEP, etcetera. They are all available under  /opt/opencascade7/lib

Any input is greatly appreciated.
