I encounter the same problem.
I installed Paraview on Ubuntu 21 using sudo apt install paraview and then all the apt dev packages required by cmake. Then it fails on:
> CMake Deprecation Warning at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cmake/paraview-5.9/paraview-use-file-deprecated.cmake:1 (message):
> The `PARAVIEW_USE_FILE` is no longer used starting with 5.7.
> Call Stack (most recent call first):
> CMakeLists.txt:8 (INCLUDE)
> CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:14 (ADD_VISIT_PLUGIN_READER):
> Unknown CMake command "ADD_VISIT_PLUGIN_READER".
> -- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
Then I tried to build paraview from sources (with an enhanced version of the paraview spack package.py). I failed to make the bridge:

Manually-specified variables were not used by the project:
Is this feature abandoned or is there a pointer to a newer documentation ?
Thanks in advance.
