  3.7.0RC3 -- make check -- how long should the test run?

I try to get povray 3.7.0rc3 compiled successfully on a SUSE Linux Enterprise
Desktop 11 (x86_64). Boundary conditions:

- non-privileged user -> prefix.
- have to rely on a self-downloaded-and-extracted boost library version 1.46.1.
Its location is saved in the environment variable BOOST_ROOT.
- I took your advice to use --with-boost-thread=boost_thread-mt

Hence, this is my configure command:

../configure --prefix=/home/bioinfp/jang/apps/povray37
--with-boost-thread=boost_thread-mt COMPILED_BY="foo" CFLAGS="-I $BOOST_ROOT"

The configure command above and 'make' ran successfully. I then invoked 'make
check', which did not return within an hour and still does not return.

The output of configure, make, make check so far:

INSTALL says that this is a _short_ test. On the other hand, top lists one
povray process occupying one core with 100 % for more than an hour now :-) I
have eight of these: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU  X5450  @ 3.00GHz.

Is this situation correct so far? I have the feeling it is not..
