You have the system, so why not give povray3.7beta source for unix a try
about any compilation issue ?
As far as I known, you will need the boost-libraries (in dev format),
and probably some other common libraries (jpeg/png/pthread... supports),
and a gnu-compatible compiling line (make, c++,...)

From your page, it seems haiku claim posix compliance, so it should look
just like another unix/linux for povray.
