Oh.  I guess my mistake was going into the unix directory and looking there for
a download.

There is, as always, more than one way to skin a cat.

One way is to use a Git client. See James Holsenback's post titled 
"Pulling 3.7 source from GitHub".

LanaHum's suggestion will let you do essentially the same, except that 
you get a ZIP package and don't need a Git client.

Both of these solutions will get you the newest version of the selected 
branch: "master" for the latest greatest but least tested and hence most 
buggy stuff, "3.7-stable" for stuff the dev team considers well-enough 
tested.


The third alternative is to download an official release; above the 
multi-colored horizontal bar, click on "1 release", or use the following 
link:

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/releases

I guess that's more akin to what you were looking for :-)
