That switch has been deprecated for years, at least since 3.6, which 
doesn't even mention it in its documentation, and just gracefully ignore 
it with the following warning:

     Radiosity commandline/INI switch is not needed in POV-Ray 3.5.
     Add a radiosity{}-block to your scene to turn on radiosity.

Unfortunately, it will only output this message if the parameter is 
turned /off/, so some pepople may not have been warned about it.
