Well, the linker stage only request libboost_thread.so, or I hope so.
(with the -l directive in the unix/Makefile)
It's the embedded loader inside povray binary which solves it as 1.36
(or maybe the linker ld itself).

Have you granted trust to the local boost library (running ldconfig
after update of /etc/ld.so.conf (or whatever)) ?
(well, you need superuser access to do that...)

I still wonder what is doing the binary.
Could you reconfigure with --enable-debug and when running "make check",
attach a debugger on the povray process ?
and then display the stack (on gdb/ddd: "where" )
