I built povray 3.7.0 beta 25b on Solaris and noticed the CPU time
accounting was wrong:

 Render Time:
   Photon Time:      0 hours  0 minutes  0 seconds (0.338 seconds)
               using 7 thread(s) with 0.-07 CPU-seconds total
   Radiosity Time:   0 hours  0 minutes  3 seconds (3.966 seconds)
               using 4 thread(s) with 0.-04 CPU-seconds total
   Trace Time:       0 hours  2 minutes 35 seconds (155.919 seconds)
               using 4 thread(s) with 0.-04 CPU-seconds total

This can be fixed by using getrusage().  A suggested source fix
is below.  The CPU time in the output will then be correct:

 Render Time:
   Photon Time:      0 hours  0 minutes  0 seconds (0.430 seconds)
               using 7 thread(s) with 1.349 CPU-seconds total
   Radiosity Time:   0 hours  0 minutes  5 seconds (5.736 seconds)
               using 4 thread(s) with 22.032 CPU-seconds total
   Trace Time:       0 hours  3 minutes 18 seconds (198.617 seconds)
               using 4 thread(s) with 782.070 CPU-seconds total

	Thanks for the report and your patch that will be included in the
next beta.
