While Haiku may be posix compliant, pov isn't it uses the GNU TLS 
extension (i.e. __thread) so an Haiku port will have to support that too 
or work around it.

It's really annoying, it stops me from compiling the linux source on OSX.


P.S. I'm the bloke who compiled POV-Ray 3.5 for BeOS on Be Bits 
(http://www.bebits.com/app/2982). Does it run on Haiku ?
