VirtualBox and Software OpenGL rendering platforms (cluster frontnodes)

ParaView 5.x requires OpenGL2 and GLSL 1.5 to render correctly!
Many Linux platforms without hardware rendering are using incompatible Mesa3D
libraries. For that purpose script builds LLVM and MESA
libraries that are installed into staging directory, patched and used by
PARAVIS module. Even then solid background is inclorrectly rendered transparent.
To fix that one can select gradient background permanently in ParaView
settings by selecting File -> Settings… -> ParaViS -> ParaView Settings ->
Color Palette -> Use Gradient Background : Enable Gradient Background.
