Yes, thanks, I managed to build it, that was the right option. I had a small problem linking to lib3ds, but I eventually found the right line in (LIB3DS_AVAILABLE = True). Sorry for asking kind of beginner question, and thanks for this piece of software and fast answer. I have now a nice 3D display of a kite simulator.

Where did you get the cgkit binary from? It looks like it was simply
built against a different version of boost than what you have on your
system. So you either have to build cgkit yourself with the version of
boost you have or you have to get boost 1.46.1 from somewhere.
