For use with ROS, we pull a particular revision from a branch of
OpenCV.  We're generally ahead of the last OpenCV release, but behind
trunk.  The opencv2/Makefile determines which revision and branch,
e.g., for cturtle:
.  That Makefile also determines which flags get passed into OpenCV's
CMake build system, so it's probably where you'd experiment with
adding or changing build flags.
