Hi John,

I did not know Debian changed their version of opencascade

There are two versions of OpenCASCADE in Debian, named 'liboce' and
'libocct'.  'occt' is the upstream variant, 'oce' is the community
maintained variant.  Historically, Debian has switched between the two
as licence requirements dictated.  

Currently, both are packaged and FreeCAD version 0.17 depends on
liboce.  However, libocct is being more actively maintained and I
believe the intention for Debian FreeCAD version 0.18 is for the
dependency to switch to libocct.

Best regards,
