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" )

Yeah, I'll bother our admin only if this will be really necessary -- so let's
see how far we get without him. At the moment we can be pretty sure that povray
uses my libboost_thread.so.1.46.1 (for the debug output below keep in mind that
my /home/bioinfp/jang/apps/lib/libboost_thread.so.1.36.0 still links to the
1.46.1 version)

It can be interesting to look also at that thread too, as it might have
the mutex the main thread is expecting.

gdb command would be "info threads"
then "thread <number_of_the_thread_for_gdb>"
and "where" once there.

It could be interesting to up to #3 to get more information about Stream
(and line_number of unixoptions.cpp... parse_conf_file() )

For the time-being, it looks like a mutex-lock for that thread, done by
the system itself.

Are you somehow on a NFS mounted filesysem ? (like "your home is mounted
everywhere, whatever the system you log in" ?)

I'm used to --disable-io-restrictions for configure, you might give it a
try (at least for the experiment).

I wonder a bit about the construct

		while ( !Stream.eof() )
		{
			// get and preprocess line
			std::getline(Stream, line);
			line = pre_process_conf_line(line);
			++line_number;

			// skip empty line
			if(line.length() == 0)
				continue;

If the last line is length 0, would the eof() be evaluated (again) ?

The C/C++ language construct

     while ( <CONDITION_1> )
     {
         <STATEMENTS_A>
         if ( <CONDITION_2> ) continue;
         <STATEMENTS_B>
     }

is fully equivalent to

     while ( <CONDITION_1> )
     {
         <STATEMENTS_A>
         if ( ! <CONDITION_2> )
         {
             <STATEMENTS_B>
         }
     }

Ok, thanks for the check. So that (i.e. loop with continue not detecting
the end of file) was a red herring.

In the meantime, I compiled on a Red Hat Server 6.1 /x86_64, and it
works fine too (once I installed boost
 and add the infamous --with-boost-thread=boost_thread_mt to configure)
(It's boost 1.41)

Alas, I have no Suse available.

Trying to provide more ideas to Jan-Philip Gehrcke:

I wonder about the need for ../ ?
Shouldn't it be "./configure", ran from the root directory of the sources ?

Also, on my "never installed any povray on this" system, there is two
complains about "cannot open file"

Whereas, in Jan-Philip Gehrcke log, there is only one complains and then
it stucks (or whatever).
Could it be that there is already something
in $HOME/.povray/3.7/povray.conf ???

In my case, this loop was an endless loop. line.length() was always 0 and the
Stream.eof() never returned true (at least I checked this until line_number =
9).

I was interested in which file was actually parsed here:

(gdb) print conf_name
$7 = (const std::locale::string &) @0x92f7f8: {
  static npos = 18446744073709551615,
  _M_dataplus = {<std::allocator<char>> = {<__gnu_cxx::new_allocator<char>> =
{<No data fields>}, <No data fields>},
    _M_p = 0x92f928 "/home/bioinfp/jang/.povray/3.7/povray.conf"}}

And now it gets funny:

ls -ahl /home/bioinfp/jang/.povray/3.7/
[...]
1.5K drwxr-xr-x 2 jang bioinfp 2 2011-06-08 15:50 povray.conf/

povray.conf was a directory in my case. I removed it, restarted 'make check' and
the test worked fine (X window opened..."POV-Ray finished").

I think the path /home/bioinfp/jang/.povray/3.7/ existed due to some former
tries of myself to 'make install' povray. I have no idea why this povray.conf
existed as a _directory_ -- it may be my fault from earlier times. But you maybe
could add some more dir/file checking so that povray never tries to read lines
from a directory :-)

I removed ~/povray and invoked 'make install'. Now, there is only one small
problem left:

Creating data directories...
Copying data files...
Creating documentation directories...
Copying documentation files...
Creating user directories...
chown: changing ownership of `/home/bioinfp/jang/.povray': Operation not

make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

The installation works, but what does the make script try to do with the
permissions? And yes, my home directory is a mounted NFS.

Thanks for your help,

Jan-Philip

Yes, I executed ./configure. That was only a 'typo' in the mail.

I should have read this mail before starting gdb. You would have brought me on
the right track easier :-) Sorry for all the excitement just due to this stupid
directory.

Duh - I guess we have a problem there.

Next question that arises here: Is this problem limited to reading of 
Unix config files (or should we say directories? :-)), or does it also 
happen with other text file read accesses, e.g. a scene or INI file? And 
is this a Unix-specific issue, or does it also affect Windows?

I guess there's work to do now; an endless loop is /not/ an acceptable 
mode of failure. Thanks for finding this bug. Would you mind filing a 
bug report on http://bugs.povray.org?

Of course, here it is: http://bugs.povray.org/task/213
As it turns out, the fix in this specific function is pretty simple. But maybe
there are more of these things?
