Sorry, posted the wrong link; while the above does point in the general 
direction, the actual distribution packages can be found here:

https://github.com/UberPOV/UberPOV/releases/tag/v1.37.0.0-beta.1

I had some problems with Makefile.in(s). first in ~uberpov/unix while 
running prebuild.sh then during configure phase ...  this time 
~uberpov/vfe/Makefile.in and ~uberpov/source/Makefile.in are problems. I 
ended up getting those files from my povray git build directory and got 
a good configure ... or so I thought. make halts right away with the 
following:

make: *** No rule to make target `disp_sdl.cpp', needed by `disp_sdl.o'. 
  Stop.

oh ... ~unix/prebuild clean doesn't seem to be working either

Can you specify "some problems"?

The files generated by POV-Ray's ./prebuild.sh won't cut it, due to 
various differences related to the project name. IIRC some of them were 
inevitable to make autoconf happy with the different project name.

> oh ... ~unix/prebuild clean doesn't seem to be working either

 From what I can tell, prebuild.sh calls the generated makefiles for 
some part of the cleanup job, so I'm not too surprised there either.

As I'm not really a Linux jockey I'd be happy about any help I can get 
for sorting out those problems you experience.

well ... i'm not into learning the in's and out's of make, and i guess 
that put's me square in the middle of knowing just enough to be 
dangerous, because things got broke quick. i think i'll hang back and 
wait to see if converting to cmake gains any traction ... seems like 
povray is becoming a windows-centric project

I don't think so; it has in the past years, but with the AGPL, Git repo 
and all I expect it to swing back a deal towards Linux and, hopefully, 
other platforms as well.

(That said, CMake may turn out to become part of that process of course.)

Looks like autoconf hates you when two .cpp files in the project have 
the same name, even if they're in different directories. In this case it 
is "backend/colour/colour.cpp" and the newly added "base/colour.cpp".

I definitely need to do something about it, or the problem will also 
surface in POV-Ray proper (same change there, except that it hasn't made 
it into the Git repo yet).

OK thanks ... got a good build, however when when I did uberpov 
--version a slight problem:

ash@linux-c2bm:~/ScratchPad/git/uberpov $ uberpov --version
uberpov: cannot open the system configuration file 
/usr/local/etc/uberpov/1.37/uberpov .conf: No such file or directory
uberpov: cannot open the user configuration file 
/home/ash/.uberpov/1.37/uberpov.conf: No such file or directory
uberpov: I/O restrictions are disabled
UberPOV 3.7.0.unofficial

Notice the space in uberpov.pov above ... the file lives properly in the 
root of the build directory. It did /not/ get copied into 
/usr/local/etc/uberpov/1.37 (uberpov.ini /did/). ~users/.uberpov on down 
did /not/ get created ... copied uberpov.conf to the two places it 
needed to be and uberpov --version now at least id's proper because it 
found the users conf file ... guess there's an error in the source 
somewher that is causing it to look for "uberpovray. conf"

uberpov --version
uberpov: cannot open the system configuration file 
/usr/local/etc/uberpov/1.37/uberpov .conf: No such file or directory
UberPOV 3.7.0.unofficial

shouldn't that be 1.3.7 ... VERSION file in root of build dir has:

1.37.0.0-alpha

so that means ~uberpov/unix/VERSION is correct ... could it be line 88 
in ~uberpov/source/backend/povray.h ????
