I don't know if this is useful, but I ran your test scene in three different
version of POV-Ray, using your command-line switches. 800 X 600 render.

1) the experimental build you used (Windows version) which is the most recent--
v3.8.0x.10064738+av694

     render time: 19 seconds

2) the latest development build-- v3.8.0-alpha.10064268+av691

     render time: 23 seconds

3) v3.7.1-beta 9 (which isn't really useful as a comparison-- I had to delete
"ac0.9" from the command line, as this version didn't recognize it)

     render time: 93 seconds

The two 3.8.0 versions produce relatively close render times in Windows... so it
seems that the LONG render time might be Linux-specific(?)
