I thought I'd pass this along, since I didn't want to pull the /entire/ 
repository ...

git prep:
---------
mkdir povray
cd povray/
git init
git config core.sparsecheckout true
echo source/ >> .git/info/sparse-checkout
echo unix/ >> .git/info/sparse-checkout
echo vfe/ >> .git/info/sparse-checkout
echo distribution/ >> .git/info/sparse-checkout
git remote add -f origin https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray
git pull origin master

build prep:
-----------
cd povray/unix
./prebuild.sh
cd ../
./configure COMPILED_BY="jho### [at] povrayorg"
make
sudo make install

... one problem I /just/ discovered is that the unix documentation that 
goes in ~povray/doc/html is missing ... looking into that!

Personally, I just pulled the whole thing; I wanted a copy for Kati's
Windoze installation.

... also the prebuild.sh step is a departure from the way it was done in 
the past, just offered this up as tmp work-around until the issue can be 
addressed

Indeed. Basically I noticed the lack of a configure script so went
looking in the unix directory. Read prebuild.sh and guessed that that
was what I should run.

added files in doc/html ... currently the sync between povray and github 
is manual, so be patient if they don't show up right away

I've added several items to the checkout list see the updated list here:

http://jholsenback.wordpress.com/2013/11/17/pulling-pov-ray-3-7-source-from-github/

namely the 1st four items added to sparse-checkout ... for some reason 
the libraries directory is also being picked up. Don't know why /yet/ 
... since it's not needed for nix source build I just deleted it.
