Thanks for the reply. I haven't tried to compile POV-Ray on Mac before - Yvo's
unofficial builds have worked perfectly for me, but of course I wanted to tinker
with UberPOV :)

So I guess I'm better off waiting for the fixes to make it back in officially?
I'm in no particular rush if this stuff is being worked on already, and I also
have a linux box I can use it on in the meantime.

You can of course download the xcode project for the command line
version on my home page and move the uberpov sources into it.
http://megapov.inetart.net/povrayunofficial_mac/ 
You only have to take
care not to modify 
libraries/jpeg/jconfig.h 
source/backend/povray.h >> I think it is save to replace this one
vfe/syspovprotobase.h 
becouse there are a few tweaks. 
Don't replace the png, tiff,... libs. They are the
same for both 3.7 and UberPOV.` All in one project, no messing with make
etc...

I compiled both, gui and command line version of UberPOV f I have time I
Iwill upload UberPOV beta 3 for mac later today after work. If time
Ipermits.

Thanks, once again, for your faithful catering to the Mac-affine wing of 
the POV-Ray community!

I'd also like to kindly ask you to try compiling from this version:

https://github.com/UberPOV/UberPOV/archive/feature/osx-support.zip

It's supposed to build fine(*) on OS X now, but I need a guinea pig to 
actually try it ;-)


(* except for the boost thing. You'll still need to add 
LIBS="-lboost_system -lboost_thread" to the ./configure command to get 
around that one; but that's not a Mac-specific issue.)

The prebuild script works fine now, but configure still bails at the boost check
even with your suggested LIBS switch, or with --with-boost and
--with-boost-thread set as per many other 3.7 compilation newsgroup threads (my
boost libs are installed in /opt/local/lib/, if that's relevant).

Can you give any additional details (what exactly configure is 
complaining about)?

You do have boost installed, do you?

This seems to be the relevant chunk of config.log:

Worth asking, but yes ;)

Is this with LIBS="-lboost_system -lboost_thread"? If not, can you try 
that again and post the relevant config.log section?

with the LIBS as above:

---------
configure:4820: checking whether the C compiler works
configure:4842: gcc    conftest.c -lboost_system -lboost_thread >&5
ld: library not found for -lboost_system
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure:4846: $? = 1
configure:4884: result: no
---------

the boost_system libs are /opt/local/lib/libboost_system-mt.a and .dylib.
